We have officially launched the Outstanding Award for the 2020/21 academic year!
The Outstanding Award, the big sister of the PLUS Award, rewards students who have achieved something substantial and significant outside of their studies at Bristol and are up for the challenge of taking their employability skills to the next level.
Employers are waking up to the importance of equality and diversity in their graduate recruitment. According to the Institute of Student Employers, 76% of employers now consider social mobility to be a priority.
