UWE Bristol is one of the UK’s most popular universities. Over 36,000 students study either in Bristol or at one of its overseas partner universities. The University is focused on giving students a university experience that will equip them for the future they want – academically, professionally and emotionally. They work in close collaboration with industry and the public sector to identify skills shortages, develop courses and provide work placements for students. A focus on real-world learning experiences means graduates are adaptable, enterprising and ready for work. And the results speak for themselves. Over 90.2% of our graduates are in work or further study 15 months after graduation. (Graduate Outcome Survey 2018/19, published 2021).
There are over 600 courses to choose from and the University is among a select number of UK institutions that delivers the highest quality of teaching, learning and graduation outcomes for students.
UWE Bristol’s research has impact. Many staff are leaders in their field and are helping industry and governments to make positive changes. The University’s research with Dove’s Self-Esteem Project has helped deliver body confidence education to 29 million young people in 140 countries, and Pee Power has turned urine into electricity at Glastonbury Festival. Whether it’s in the classroom or working on live projects, research brings the most up-to-date thinking to students learning.
The University also gets great student ratings, coming 4th in the South West of England for student satisfaction (excluding specialist HEIs), according to The National Student Survey 2021.
