The University of Bristol ranked 14th overall in the Times Good University Guide 2022 and 62nd in the QS World Rankings.

The University of Bristol loses one ranking point compared to last year’s Times Good University Guide, in which it ranked 13th.

Hugh Brady, Vice-Chancellor and President of the University, said this achievement “is a testament to the hard work of our staff.

“I would also like to thank our students, who persevered with exceptional courage during what has been an unprecedented and difficult time,” he continued.

Bristol’s research quality has also maintained its stature, ranking 6 out of 127 in the Times Good University Guide.

The city of Bristol was also named the best place to live in Britain (2017) and continued to be a cultural and political center of the UK, even during the lockdown.

Although it only lost one place in its overall ranking, the University of Bristol ranked low in several other categories, including social inclusion and student satisfaction.

The Guide showed student satisfaction in Bristol to be low, ranking 80th out of 130 institutions. Likewise, education was ranked in the bottom 50 percent, at the 89th.

The university ranked second to last (114th out of 116 institutions) in the social inclusion rankings for England and Wales and the same for first generation students.

The ranking of public school admissions is also low, with UoB ranking 107th out of 116.

On Bristol admission in 2020, 19.5% of home undergraduates were of black, Asian or ethnic minority background, with 79.5% of students of white origin.
