Skills Bridge

Skills Bridge is a joint University of Bristol-UWE project which connects local organisations with both Universities to access the huge amount of student capacity available for student research project, volunteering and paid internships.

We are developing links with key partners in the City to increase opportunities for student-community engagement projects:

We have facilitated the development of student research projects, including environmental policy & management consultancy and business planning for NGOs. We have helped organisations access more volunteers and paid interns in partnership with Bristol SU and the University of Bristol Careers Service.

If your organisation has a challenge that could be a suitable research question for a student research project, go to and submit a question!

If you are an academic looking to develop an engaged learning unit, please contact Hannah Tweddell
