A passion for sustainability

As a challenge-seeker, I made the right decision to study at Bristol.

This university offers me a world of opportunities in a field I’m passionate about: sustainability. This is what made the difference for me.

Beyond my education, it’s the city, the Students’ Union, and especially the amazing people I’ve met who have helped me unleash my full potential. This led me to start volunteering for several environmental initiatives.

'Bristol is the real game changer'

Suddenly, I was leading networks of hundreds of students, organising events and campaigns, and contributing to decision-making at the university. I’m proud to have been invited to events that I had dreamed of going to such as one of the world's biggest conferences against climate change, COP26.

Studying biology is valuable for my future career. But being part of the University of Bristol is the real game changer.
