The University of Bristol, founded in 1909, is now well established as a world-class university with centres of excellence spanning the whole range of disciplines. It is a member of the UK's Russell Group of leading research universities and of the Worldwide Universities Network. The excellence of the University's research was recognised in the latest independent assessment of research quality (RAE 2008). Over 61 per cent of the research work assessed in 48 research fields at Bristol was awarded either the top 4* rating, defined as 'world leading', or the 3* rating, classed as 'internationally excellent'.
The University has about 11,500 undergraduate and 5,300 postgraduate students (3,500 taught and 1,800 research). The demand for places on the University's taught programmes is very strong, reflecting the University's outstanding reputation and achievements and the supportive environment it offers. The University's teaching and research fit strongly together, and the quality of the University's teaching has been independently judged as excellent. There are over 100 taught postgraduate programmes on offer, and opportunities for PhD study in most areas.
There are about 2,000 students from outside the UK at Bristol, and over a quarter of postgraduate students are international. The University values the educational and social benefits that a diverse body of students brings, and guarantees to provide all international students with accommodation in their first year.
The University is located in the central part of Bristol, the largest city in the West of England, a thriving business and cultural centre, and a beautiful and enjoyable place to live. Bristol is surrounded by attractive countryside, and within easy reach of London and other major cultural and academic centres in the UK.
