University of Bristol

History

The University’s history dates back to the founding of University College, Bristol in 1876. Bristol was the first higher education institution in the UK to admit men and women on an equal basis, and it became the University of Bristol in 1909. Today, it is one of the top 10 universities in the UK (QS World University Rankings 2019).

International applications

Students and staff from more than 130 countries help to make Bristol a truly international university. International students can apply through Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). Students can also apply using Common Application (Common App) for most courses.

Subject areas

With a comprehensive choice of subjects, our students engage with intellectually challenging courses and programmes that encourage independence of mind. The University offers a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees across six faculties: Arts, Engineering, Health Sciences, Life Sciences, Science, and Social Sciences and Law.

The city of Bristol

The University campus is at the heart of the city of Bristol in the south-west of England, under two hours from London. Big enough to be exciting but small enough to be safe and friendly, the city is known for its independent spirit, grand architecture, beautiful parks and vibrant cultural scene.

Student life

Bristol Students’ Union supports over 300 societies and clubs covering a wide range of interests, allowing you to take part in sport, music or drama, or enjoy new food, games or hobbies. Sports facilities include an indoor sports centre on campus, a sports complex with grass and artificial pitches, and a boathouse on the River Avon.
