About The Program

The University of Bristol is an innovative university that has tackled global issues like climate change, infection and immunity, human rights, and cryptography. Engineering students will find many engineering units are taught the full academic year. A UNESCO City of Film, Bristol is an exceptional location for film, media, and art majors. Once the seat of British naval power, Bristol is now famous for being one of the United Kingdom’s most inclusive and green cities. The city has a long tradition of support for the LGBTQ+ community and a demonstrated commitment to clean transportation and energy.

Much like the city for which it is named, the University of Bristol’s commitment to clean energy and transportation is immediately apparent in the courses, research, and building design. Bristol and the University of Bristol are a multicultural hub for a widely diverse and close-knit study community. The campus spans a large area of southwest England and includes eight libraries. Thanks to generous funding, the university’s indoor and outdoor sporting facilities are excellent. In addition to academic and practical support, like student ambassadors who meet you when you arrive in the UK, the university offers health and wellness support for international students. It is no wonder Bristol has been voted the best student city in the UK. The Global Lounge organizes free social events, regular cultural exchanges, and a Language Café where students can meet and interact with one another in many languages.
