University of Bristol

Since Bristol was founded in 1876, we’ve had a reputation for doing things a little differently. Bristol was the first institute of higher education in the UK to admit women on an equal basis with men. More recently, in 2019, we became the first UK university to declare a climate emergency.

Bristol is one of the top ten universities in the UK (QS World University Rankings 2022). We’re a member of the Russell Group of UK research-intensive universities and one of the country's top five for research (THE analysis of REF 2014).

We welcome students and staff from over 150 countries, creating an exciting and diverse community.

Explore your postgraduate options at our upcoming Summer events. Details will be available in April 2022.
