The Worldwide Universities Network comprises 19 research-intensive institutions spanning 5 continents.

The University of Bristol became a member of the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) in 2001. The University's membership of WUN and the opportunities it offers to forge close partnerships with leading institutions around the globe will help us to achieve our goals and ensure that Bristol remains a world class institution.

By working with multiple partners, locally, nationally and internationally, Bristol provides a dynamic, flexible and innovative environment for learning, discovery and enterprise. Staff and students across the university are encouraged to participate in WUN's broad portfolio of activities.

WUN activities in Bristol are coordinated by the Bristol WUN Development Manager, Dr Susan Jim.
