Bristol offers a range of opportunities to help students to inform their decision making. Students currently taking A-levels, BTECs, an Access to HE Diploma or equivalent qualifications can apply to many of our Post-16 directly. These programmes give a taste of what it is like to study at Bristol and also have admissions-benefits attached for participants, such as a Guaranteed Contextual Offer.

Are you a student interested in getting involved?

Local students can take part in Access to Bristol or Pathways to Health Sciences, which offer weekly academic classes in subject-themed groups. Year 12 students nationally can apply to our Sutton Trust or Insight into Bristol Summer Schools for an opportunity to spend a week staying on campus. Black and Asian students may be interested in participating in Next Step Bristol, an entirely virtual outreach programme exclusively for students of Black, Asian or Mixed heritage. Our series of Foreign Language Film Webinars, which hosts discussions and analysis on films in French, German, Spanish and Russian, is open to students studying languages at A-Level, or interested in taking this up at University.
