Please anticipate that it may take up to 10 days to add a reference at very busy times. Please talk to your tutor well in advance.

Access to Bristol

We have close links with the University of Bristol and many year 12 and year 13 students participate in the Access to Bristol and Pathways to Health Science programmes every year. In 2019-20, 5 students from Ralph Allen School took part.

Students attend a series of sessions on Wednesday afternoons during the autumn or spring term. The sessions give an idea of what it is like to study at the University of Bristol, working with academics and current students who can offer advice and guidance about higher education and their subject area.

In addition to Access to Bristol, 15 students last year took part in other activities at the University, such as Taster Days and Options Conferences.

Taking part shows a commitment to further study that strengthens university applications. Students who successfully complete the programme are guaranteed a contextual offer/interview from Bristol, a top-ten UK University (QS World University Rankings 2020).
