The University of Bristol is one of the most successful universities in the UK, ranked top 10 in the country in the QS World University Rankings 2020. When you study at Bristol, you join an academic community with an international profile, and many Bristol alumni go on to be leaders in their chosen field.

Our six faculties cover a broad range of subjects - Arts, Biomedical Sciences, Engineering, Health Sciences, Science, Social Sciences and Law - yet the University remains small enough to feel warm and friendly. Ranked 9th in the UK for graduate employability, it is also the 4th most targeted university by the top 100 UK companies.

The University is at the heart of the lively city of Bristol, located in South-West England, only 90 minutes from London. Bristol is a popular and vibrant city that was named best place to live in the UK by the Sunday Times in 2017.
