Education in Bristol is about more than formal learning. Yes, we do have two leading universities, home to 56,000 students, and are England’s first official UNESCO Learning City, but for us learning is about improving the cultural, economic, environmental and social aspects of city life. By linking with industry, we create opportunities to develop a world-class workforce for the city and equip people from all backgrounds with the skills they need for work and life.
We lead the research field in robotics, environment and life sciences, digital technologies, data science, population health, and assisted living, and are part of the GW4 network which brings together four of the most research-intensive and innovative universities in the UK – Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter.
Home to a wide range of opportunities – especially in the creative and technological sectors – and a great quality of life, it’s no wonder that around half of Bristol graduates choose to stay in the city to pursue their careers and enjoy their lives.
