Web and new media

Web content publishing, social media and digital marketing is managed and overseen by the Web Editor team. We manage the roll out of web sites and social media channels across the University and develop the web in terms of its content, digital marketing and user experience with a view to supporting the University's strategic goals. We also assess the best ways of exploiting emerging digital trends and technologies for the benefit of the University. We also offer advice on planning new websites (UoB access only) and provide site reviews (UoB access only) for departments using the templates .

If you have any other web-related queries, please don't hesitate to contact us. You can contact the team via email, web-editor@bristol.ac.uk
