Widening participation and access

We want to see you thrive throughout your studies and have a number of teams dedicated to creating and celebrating our inclusive community:

  • The Global Lounge is a welcoming social space at the heart of our campus that runs a range of cultural activities.
  • Our Student Union is home to a wide range of societies and networks that aim to foster community and belonging.

The Bristol Master's Scholarship enabled me to have the freedom to enjoy living in the city more comfortably and took some of the pressure off working part time during my studies.
