Work experience

The University of Bristol is a diverse, challenging and enjoyable place to work. It employs over 5,000 people, ranging from researchers to maintenance staff, and there truly is a career here for everybody.

Every year we offer work experience placements for young people in a wide range of areas. This is a fantastic opportunity to find out more about a career you may be interested in and could also help you decide what to do after your studies.
