Bristol Doctoral College
Bristol Doctoral College provides information, guidance and resources to research students throughout their degree. We support the research community through collaborative events, interactive workshops and engagement opportunities.
The University is continually investing in facilities and technology for our students, including the Global Lounge, a purpose-made cultural hub on campus where students can connect and learn from each other and find out about global opportunities. In recent years we have committed around £700 million to campus development projects. These ambitious plans will transform our campuses, buildings, and facilities and enhance your university experience.
We are committed to encouraging the next generation of researchers and believe that finances should not be an obstacle for talented applicants. We are delighted to offer a range of fully-funded studentships for 2024 entry. There is also a range of specific research projects and fields which offer funded PhD opportunities that are either co-funded with Bristol and other institutions or externally supported by industrial collaboration.
Bristol is also a key institution across various doctoral training cohorts that manage and distribute UK research council PhD funding. Doctoral Training Partnerships
students typically benefit from funding for fees and living costs, as well as access to professional development opportunities and cross-institutional expertise.
