United Kingdom

The University of Bristol is a red-brick research university located in Bristol, United Kingdom. It received its Royal Charter in 1909, and its predecessor institution, University College, Bristol, had been in existence since 1876.

Bristol was ranked within the top 50 universities in the world, and top ten in the UK, in the QS World University Rankings 2018.

Bristol is organised into six academic faculties, which run a comprehensive range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses. The main campus is based in Clifton, at the heart of Bristol. The University had a total income of £530.9 million in 2014/15 and is one of the largest independent employers in the city.

Bristol is a member of the Russell Group of research-intensive British universities, the European-wide Coimbra Group and the Worldwide Universities Network. The University holds an Erasmus Charter, sending more than 500 students per year to partner institutions in Europe.

Bristol currently has 40 Fellows of the Royal Society and 15 of the British Academy. Thirteen Nobel Laureates have been associated with the University community.

 

Why work at Bristol University?

As a globally distinguished University in a beautiful location, Bristol offers a vibrant research community and a positive work environment.

Bristol provides excellent opportunities for all staff to build their skills and careers. In addition to competitive salaries, the University offers a range of financial benefits and opportunities for achieving work-life balance.

As well as offering a supportive and rewarding working environment, the University has a range of initiatives to support staff wellbeing, such as tailored support for those who are relocating or new to the UK.

The University campus is at the heart of the city of Bristol, a beautiful, cosmopolitan and vibrant city with excellent transport links just 90 minutes from London. Bristol has a diverse arts, music and cultural scene, a wealth of historic architecture and plenty of beautiful green spaces. The city was named the best place to live in the UK by The Sunday Times in 2017.

Bristol's modern economy is built on the creative media, electronics and aerospace industries, and the city-centre docks have been redeveloped as centres of heritage and culture. The city has England's strongest digital media supply chain outside London, and Bristol is a buzzing incubator for start-ups and new enterprise.

The University is committed to sustainability. Bristol was the first UK city with European Green Capital status in 2015 and the University community played a large role in helping the city deliver this. A cycle to work scheme and a car sharing scheme are part of the University transport plan.
