Description

University of Bristol has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

This three-year, full-time programme aims to:

We will also accept university-based applications from international applicants, followed by shortlisting and interviews of selected candidates.There are usually eight positions for home students: one each in Taunton, Yeovil, Dorchester, Portsmouth and Exeter, and three opportunities in Bristol/Bath.
