Bristol is one of the most popular and successful universities in the UK and was ranked within the top 50 universities in the world in the QS World University Rankings 2018.

University of Bristol Sport and Bristol Students’ Union work together to provide a wide range of opportunities for our students, with over 70 active student sports clubs and societies.

We are absolutely delighted to have finished in the top 10 in the BUCS league in 2016/17. We help our students to train, compete and achieve their sporting goals during their time at Bristol with our dedicated team of coaches and support staff to help them to reach their full sporting potential.

The Performance Squad is set up to support and develop the journey of our most-talented athletes who are combining sporting excellence with their studies. Alumni include Rio 2016 Olympic medallists Georgie Twigg (Gold, Team GB Women’s Hockey), Hannah Mills (Gold, Women’s 470 Sailing) and Tom Mitchell (Silver, Rugby 7’s Captain).
