Ranked 49th in the world and 9th in the UK by the QS World University Rankings 2020, the University of Bristol is internationally recognised for providing students with world-class degrees that prepare them for the world of work. With 23,000 students from more than 150 different countries, international students will become part of a global campus.
Being the second most-targeted university by top UK employers (High Fliers Research 2019) means students leave the institution feeling confident of getting a job at a reputable company. Bristol is also ranked sixth in the country for graduate employability (QS Graduate Employability Rankings 2019), and alumni from the institution are among the highest paid graduates in the UK.
With continual investment in new facilities, students have access to innovative, state-of-the-art technology and resources. The institution has nine libraries, outstanding sports facilities including a swimming pool and indoor sports centre, and four study centres, including Beacon House – a large central hub with flexible study spaces in the heart of the city and campus.
The University of Bristol takes great pride in its research, working to provide innovative solutions to some of the toughest issues facing our society. From climate change to human rights, Bristol is doing everything it can to make a difference to the world as we know it. The University was ranked in the top five in the UK for research in the Times Higher Education analysis of the Research Excellence Framework 2014.
There is lots to do away from lectures, too. The city of Bristol was named the number one place to live in the UK in 2017 (Sunday Times), the active Students’ Union runs hundreds of clubs and societies, and the University was placed in the top ten for team sports in 2017-18 in the inter-university league, BUCS.
