The University of Bristol is a red brick research university in Bristol, England.[1] It received its royal charter in 1909,[2] although it can trace its roots to a Merchant Venturers' school founded in 1595 and University College, Bristol, which had been in existence since 1876.[3]

Bristol is organised into six academic faculties composed of multiple schools and departments running over 200 undergraduate courses, largely in the Tyndalls Park area of the city.[4] The university had a total income of £682.9 million in 2019-20, of which £151.9 million was from research grants and contracts.[5] It is the largest independent employer in Bristol.[6]

Current academics include 21 fellows of the Academy of Medical Sciences, 13 fellows of the British Academy, 13 fellows of the Royal Academy of Engineering and 44 fellows of the Royal Society.[7] Among alumni, faculty, and affiliates, the university counts 13 Nobel laureates.

Bristol is a member of the Russell Group of research-intensive British universities,[8] the European-wide Coimbra Group[9] and the Worldwide Universities Network, of which the university's previous vice-chancellor, Eric Thomas, was chairman from 2005 to 2007. In addition, the university holds an Erasmus Charter, sending more than 500 students per year to partner institutions in Europe.[10]
