The University of Bristol has secured third place in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019 for the Southwest region.

Nationally, Bristol was awarded 19th place, meaning that the university has fallen three ranks since last year.

The University of Bristol secured third place regionally, with Exeter coming first and Bath being ranked as second

The Good University Guide also accounted for the 2018 National student survey, in which Bristol scored 75.7% for teaching excellence and 74.1% for student experience.

The report accompanying The Good University Guide claimed that Bristol will be attempting to diversify its future student intake.

The university may lower entry requirements for students applying from schools with below-average progression to higher education

One of the ways the university will begin to do this is by reducing its standard offer for English and History by a grade, as well as trimming the GCSE requirements for medicine applicants.

Moreover, students applying from schools or districts with below-average progression to higher education may also receive an offer with two grades below that which is typically required for their subjects.
