Parents and carers

Starting university is an exciting time for any new student. At Bristol we value the vital role parents, relatives and carers play at all stages in this process.

Parents and carers online events

Join our panels for live discussions and find out what Bristol has to offer. Our online events include:

  • practical tips on choosing the best fit for your son or daughter;
  • an overview of the application process – from how offers are made at Bristol, to key dates and top tips for applying;
  • the support we provide at Bristol as students take the next step.

Go to our Virtual Bristol platform and search 'parents and carers' to find out when you can join or watch on-demand.
