Internships and opportunities

The University of Bristol is committed to the diversification of our postgraduate student body. We recognise the value of a varied cohort and want to encourage people from a range of backgrounds to apply for postgraduate study with us.

Bristol Master's Scholarship

New for 2022: The Bristol Master’s Scholarship will award 50 talented home students from underrepresented backgrounds within our student community £2000 each to help support their studies.

Access Postgrad scheme 

As a prospective postgraduate student, you may have reservations about the time, skills and resources needed to access postgraduate study. The Access Postgrad scheme provides peer mentoring and skills development sessions to help current University of Bristol undergraduates decide whether postgraduate study is right for them.  

We are pleased to be able to offer funding in the form of a few waiver of up to £5,000 for postgraduate taught tuition fees to support 10 Access Postgrad participants. Please read the funding section below to find out if you are eligible.

We anticipate Access Postgrad to start at the end of October 2021 with all participants due to complete by April 2022. 

Summer research opportunities

Each year we provide promising undergraduates from underrepresented groups with hands-on experience of research during the summer holidays. This is a fantastic opportunity to find out more about further study and a career in research.

Applications are currently closed.

The Access Postgrad scheme addressed all of my concerns about postgraduate study including how to apply, how much work you are expected to do and also future career prospects.

I would definitely recommend this scheme as it has been very helpful.
