Industry connections
Bristol enjoys strong connections with hundreds of organisations worldwide, and is in the top three UK universities targeted by leading employers (High Fliers, 2017). The University is ranked 6th in the UK for graduate employability (QS, 2017) and Bristol alumni are among the highest paid in the country (LEO, 2017).
