UWE Bristol has well over 1,000 developed partnerships from Aardman to the World Health Organisation, from North America to Vietnam, which it uses to the benefit of its students, research and knowledge exchange activities.

One of the largest UK universities in terms of its 28,679 degree students and the largest provider of higher education in the South West of England, UWE Bristol has almost doubled the size of its main campus through a deal with HP. The University is consistently among the top universities for graduate employment, having 78% of its graduates in professional and graduate jobs within 6 months of graduation, compared to 71% average for all universities.

It exceeds its benchmarks for the number of students who are “first in family to higher education”, and has won praise for its widening participation and volunteering initiatives in the city. It is only one of four universities in the country to have a University Enterprise Zone providing space for over 70 businesses, and the largest UK robotics lab.
