Bristol is one of the most popular and successful universities in the UK, ranked in the
world’s top 50 in the QS World University Rankings 2020.
Our University Strategy captures the collective ambition and imagination of our staff, our
students and the wider Bristol family. It provides a roadmap that sets out our aspirations for
the next seven years.
We attract students from all over the world, creating a rich and exciting international
community. We are also lucky to be located in a vibrant, dynamic city with a reputation for
creativity and sustainability.
With a choice of over 200 degree courses covering a broad range of subjects, our students
engage with intellectually challenging courses that encourage independence of mind.
Bristol is small enough to feel warm and friendly, with Wellbeing Advisers in both
University residences and academic schools to support our students, personal tutors and
additional support services. It’s also big enough to provide outstanding extracurricular
opportunities, including a host of clubs, sporting activities and community and volunteering
We continually invest in new and existing facilities, training and technology.
Our libraries, IT facilities and informal study spaces keep students connected and support
independent learning. We have a comprehensive network of support services to ensure that
our students can get help and advice on all aspects of university life – academic, personal,
financial and practical – if and when they need it.
