We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
One of Britain’s most famous and historic ports, the city of Bristol is situated in the south west of England, a little over 100 miles from London and across the Severn Estuary from South Wales. It is home to two universities and over 50,000 students.
Postgraduate students in Bristol benefit from the range of opportunities and experiences offered by one of England’s largest regional cities. You’ll be able to check out a music scene that has produced internationally renowned acts including Tricky, Roni Size and Massive Attack as well as visit some of the famous venues they’ve played at.
Bristol is also the site of numerous works by the acclaimed – and anonymous – ‘local’ street artist, Banksy, so you can look forward to telling friends and family you’ve (probably) bumped into him. Other popular attractions in Bristol include one of the world’s oldest zoos (and rare species breeding centres) as well as a large modern shopping centre.
The iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge, opened in 1864, is one of Bristol’s most recognised landmarks, spanning the Avon Gorge. Based on designs by the ground-breaking engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, it’s one of the oldest bridges of its kind in the world. Brunel also designed the SS Great Britain, the largest sea vessel in the world when it was completed in 1845. Today, the SS Great Britain is a museum ship docked in Bristol and a popular tourist attraction.
The oldest university in Bristol is The University of Bristol, which was founded in 1909. It was a founding member of the Russell Group of leading UK universities and is now ranked as one of the top higher education institutions in the UK and one of the top 100 global universities.
Bristol is also home to The University of the West of England, founded in 1992 and recognised as one of the best new universities in the UK. Alongside its universities, Bristol is renowned as a UK science and engineering hub and a significant centre of aerospace research.
There is an excellent range of employment opportunities in Bristol for talented postgraduates. The city has a particularly strong background in the aerospace industry, with companies such as BAE Systems and Rolls-Royce based in Bristol and the surrounding area. Other important sectors in Bristol include technology, media and computing. The BBC Natural History Unit, famous for its nature documentaries, is based at Broadcasting House in Bristol, and many BBC programmes are produced in the city.
