The University of Bristol is a truly international university, proud to welcome staff and students from over 120 countries across the world. We are committed to creating an environment where all can flourish and we value every individual who studies or works here.

The UK’s decision to leave the EU will bring about some changes, but it will be a gradual process. In the short term there are no changes to freedom of movement, immigration status, tuition fees or access to student funding for students from the EU studying in the UK.

The information below addresses some of the questions you may have about studying at the University of Bristol in light of Brexit. We will update this page with new information as it is available. 

Bristol is a European city

In the EU referendum, 62 per cent of voters in Bristol voted in favour of remaining in the EU. We echo the words of the Mayor of Bristol, Marvin Rees, who said: 'Bristol has always been an outward-looking city and we benefit enormously from our overseas relationships...Our reputation as one of Europe’s leading innovative, creative and sustainable cities makes Bristol a valuable asset for partners around the world.'

We will continue to attract some of the brightest students from across the world, and we hope you will be assured that Bristol is a welcoming place to study. The University's equality and discrimination policy reiterates that bullying, harassment or victimisation will not be tolerated.
