Public consultations

To make sure we hear your views, we consult local residents, business, civic organisations, alumni and the public, nationally and internationally.

Building names

We held a building names public consultation to get your views, as part of our work on addressing the University’s historic connections to the trafficking of enslaved Africans.

Take part in research

You can get involved in research at the University:

Children of the 90s (Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children, ALSPAC)

One of the most detailed birth cohort studies in the world, investigating how environmental and genetic factors affect a person’s health and development. Information from the study has already contributed to research on some of the most pressing health questions of our time, including childhood obesity, air pollution and mental health.

If you or your child were born in or around Bristol between 1991 and 1992, find out if you are eligible to take part in Children of the 90s.
