University of Bristol

- United States


Before the University of Bristol, there was University College, Bristol

University College, Bristol existed from 1876 to 1909 and was the precursor to the University of Bristol.

The University offers more than 200 degree courses made up of Single Honours degrees, which involve studying one main subject and Joint Honours degrees, which allow you to study two subjects alongside one another.

Social sciences and arts courses (apart from modern languages degrees) take three years to complete and lead to a Bachelors (BA, BSc or LLB) degree.

Most science, engineering and some medical sciences schools offer a choice of four-year Integrated Masters (MEng, MSci) or three-year Bachelors (BEng, BSc) courses. If you are in doubt about which course to choose, we recommend that you apply for the Masters course to secure four years of financial support, since funding bodies may refuse a subsequent extension of study.

Dentistry, Medicine and Veterinary Science usually take five years to complete.

Our courses have a modular structure, made up of mandatory and optional units, chosen from within your subject area. You may also be able to take one or more units in a different subject, enabling you to explore your interests in other areas of study.

Our students always say how much they love the city of Bristol - from its friendly people and fantastic music scene to its vibrant harbourside, green spaces and buzzing centre. Best of all, Bristol is the perfect size, offering all the excitement of a big city packed into an area you can easily explore on foot or by bike.

Famous for its art and culture, Bristol is renowned for its events and festivals which are on offer all year round catering for an eclectic mix of interests.

Bristol hosts a wide range of festivals, including the acclaimed International Balloon Fiesta, St Paul's Carnival and the Harbour Festival.
