Finding love at Bristol 9 February 2017 With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we asked if you found love while studying at Bristol. From literally tying the knot to stolen handbags, here's what you told us...
  • Alumni spotlight: Stephen Lloyd, President, US Foundation 18 October 2017 From why he came to Bristol, to how Bristol influences him today, Stephen Lloyd (BSc 1982), President of the US Foundation, tells us how Bristol impacted his life.
  • University of Bristol US Foundation: A Vision of Community 13 October 2017 Welcome to the University of Bristol US Foundation, which aims to bring together our alumni working and living in the States through sharing information and insight on key issues facing our alma mater, through networking and communications.
  • ‘O Captain! My Captain!’ 5 October 2017 Today [5 October], it's World Teacher day! In the film Dead Poets Society, students leap onto their desks to salute the English teacher that inspired them. Here at Bristol, we celebrate our lecturers who are changing lives in our Best of Bristol lecture series, and Tom Corfield (MEng 2009) speaks to Nonesuch about why he set it up seven years ago.
  • Highlights of the year 15 September 2017 'It is because of alumni and friends like you, who believe in what we stand for, who champion our cause and introduce us into conversations, who proudly talk about our ambitions, who actively help us to realise them by giving time and money – who enable us to take our next steps with even greater confidence. Thank you for believing in Bristol.’ Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Hugh Brady.
  • Celebrate your support 15 September 2017 The University of Bristol was established with the extraordinary support and foresight of our founding benefactors. Today, your generous support continues to have a tremendous impact, by helping to realise Bristol’s role as an agent for positive change and transforming lives.
  • Reaching for new horizons 15 September 2017 Inspired by research at the University of Bristol, alumnus Dr Jonathan de Pass (MB ChB 1979) and his wife Georgina recently donated £1 million to boost Bristol’s research capability. Their donation will be transformative and will support many priority research areas such as population health and cardiovascular sciences, and will also look at supporting research in Parkinson’s disease and Bristol’s Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
  • Empowering the next generation 15 September 2017 ‘I believe that education brings power and freedom. It’s a private and public good, and a fundamental human right. By levelling the playing field, everyone benefits, not just locally, but throughout the entire education sector. It’s what makes alumni support for our pioneering Bristol Scholars scheme so revolutionary.’ Michael Jaffrin, Headteacher at St Brendan’s School, Bristol.
  • Enriching the student experience 15 September 2017 ‘My trip to Kolkata challenged me to make changes to my attitude in life. It doesn’t really matter where we come from and what we look like. Instead, it is our human qualities, positivity, hopefulness and love that count and have the most meaning. In this sense, I feel like the people I met have impacted on me much more than I did on them.’ Catherine Ollerhead, University of Bristol medical student
  • Championing the pursuit of knowledge 15 September 2017 Your belief in supporting learning and discovery at Bristol is evident. This year you have enabled Bristol to push innovative research and provide high quality facilities for our PhD students to pursue their studies and further the knowledge and achievements of our University community.
  • Reimagining Bristol’s future 15 September 2017 A landmark £10 million gift from alumnus Hugh Sloane (BSc 1977) and the Sloane Robinson Foundation will support the creation of the University’s new Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus (TQEC). This visionary support – the University’s largest ever single gift – will be central to reimagining Bristol as one of the world’s great civic universities and the regeneration of our city.
