We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Founded in 1876, the University of Bristol combines a proud tradition of academic excellence with an independent and forward-thinking spirit. We attract the best and brightest students from more than 150 countries, creating a rich and exciting international community.
Bristol is a top 10 UK university (QS World Rankings 2021) and a member of the Russell Group of UK research-intensive universities. Our research is ranked in the top five in the UK (joint fifth for research intensity, Times Higher Education analysis of REF 2014).
Booking for our postgraduate virtual open weeks in November will open soon. Register your interest to be the first to know when bookings for our subject-specific and central services webinars open.
Postgraduate taught: 16 to 20 November.
Postgraduate research: 23 to 27 November.
We offer taught and research postgraduate programmes in a wide range of subject areas across our six faculties: Arts, Engineering, Health Sciences, Life Sciences, Science, and Social Sciences and Law.
Our university is at the heart of Bristol, a historic, lively and green city in the south-west of England under two hours from London. With its vibrant culture, desirable location and independent spirit, it’s no surprise that Bristol has been named the UK’s best place to live ( Sunday Times , 2017).
We continually invest in facilities and technology for our students. Our state-of-the-art buildings include the new £56.5 million Life Sciences building and the pioneering Centre for Nanoscience and Quantum Information. As part of our ambitious strategy, we are investing £300 million in a new postgraduate campus with a focus on digital technologies.
The University of Bristol is eligible for the UK government’s Postgraduate Loans Scheme for Master’s programmes.
