The University of Bristol's Careers Service provides advice and support to ensure students develop the right skills to compete in the global employment market. They run events and fairs every term which are an excellent opportunity for students to meet employers and find out about graduate and work experience opportunities.
They also have dedicated resources for international students and provide a Bristol PLuS Award which is available to all students.

Launch of the Centre for Science and Philosophy
The Centre for Science and Philosophy officially opened on 4 December 2012. This builds on the excellence in the philosophy and history of science at the University of Bristol. The Centre will promote the understanding and interpretation of science by supporting collaborative work between philosophers and researchers in history, economics, logic and mathematics, engineering, psychology, physics and the chemical, biological, medical, geographical, social and political sciences. The launch hosted four expert speakers from diverse areas in the philosophy of science. They each gave a 30 minute talk on their specialism: from the philosophy of physics and mathematics to the philosophy of cognitive science. There was also introductory addresses from Professor James Ladyman, Director of the Centre, and Professor Jon Keating, Dean of the Faculty of Science.
