About the University of Bristol

University College, Bristol existed from 1876 to 1909 and was the precursor to the University of Bristol. The University of Bristol offers a truly international experience. More than one sixth of their students are from overseas, which means that all of their students benefit from living and studying in a diverse, global community. The Nobel Prize for Literature 1953 was awarded to Sir Winston Churchill, 'for his mastery of historical and biographical description as well as for brilliant oratory in defending exalted human values'.

The University of Bristol has had a reputation for innovation since its founding in 1876. It was the first institute of higher education in the country to admit women on an equal basis with men and in 1946 established the UK's first university drama department. More recently, the University has influenced many aspects of our lives through life-changing research in areas such as cot death prevention and 3G mobile technology innovation.

Bristol was the first university to take part in the Green Impact Awards, a scheme to reduce collective environmental impact, and one of only eight UK universities selected to take part in a pilot for the Green Academy programme to make sustainability part of the curriculum. Bristol has also won accolades for energy efficiency, transport planning and environmentally innovative teaching, and are an accredited Fairtrade university.

The University is in the heart of the historic and buzzing city of Bristol, with its shops, restaurants, bars, cinemas, theatres, parks, museums, galleries and harbourside. The city also has a laid-back feel that students love. Bristol is also a popular tourist destination: the countryside surrounding Bristol is beautiful and easily accessible, and the coastline is close at hand.

The city of Bristol has very good transport links to other parts of the UK. The major hubs are Bristol International Airport, Bristol Temple Meads railway station, and Bristol bus and coach station. Within the city there are numerous regular bus services and taxi ranks. And of course you can always walk - most of what you will need at Bristol is located within a radius of approximately 20 minutes' walk.
