At the University of Bristol, we work to provide the support structures and opportunities that will enable you to make the most of your time at the University. To help create a positive environment for learning and academic achievement, we have established various rules and regulations that all students need to follow if they accept an offer to study here.
We’ve collected together the codes of conduct, policies and procedures that you need to be aware of, covering both your academic studies and wider university life. Please take the time to read through the following documents.
We welcome applications from talented candidates of all backgrounds and we are committed to promoting equal opportunities. The life of the University is enriched by having a body of students which reflects the community at large. We select people who have the ability and motivation to benefit from their intended programmes of study and who will make positive contributions to the life of the University.
