Resources for students
University community induction course
We think the University of Bristol is a very special community and we would like you to learn more about it. We are committed to creating an inclusive learning community where all students, from all backgrounds, have an enriching and stimulating experience. We want our students to be able to express themselves so they can thrive, learn, and grow during their time at university, on placement, and in their future careers. It is all of our responsibility to keep our community a safe and welcoming place and in this course, you will learn more about the role you play in this.
The course will cover:
• The University of Bristol community and its connections to other communities
• Our expectations for our community
• How to manage discrimination, harassment and abuse
• What you can do to contribute towards a positive community
Equality, Diversity and Inclusion e-learning course
Our short e-learning course will equip you with important information about equality, diversity and inclusion for your time as a student and beyond. It includes the support that is available at Bristol, how to report any concerns, and opportunities to reflect on how your own behaviour can ensure that Bristol is a welcoming environment where all our students and staff can thrive.

Student Coronavirus EDI Resource Hub
During these difficult times it is vital to acknowledge that some communities and individuals are disproportionately affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, due in large part to the existing inequalities that they face every day. We've created a Student Coronavirus EDI Resource Hub SharePoint site to help make students aware of the support available to them.
