Universities and small regional economies faced considerable headwinds during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this report, we consider the economic and social impact of the university’s substantial operational expenditure; its diverse and cosmopolitan student body, including their skills development; as well as the university’s investments for the digital future.
During the 2020/21 school year, the university supported £879 million of GDP in the city of Bristol, a figure projected to grow to £1.1 billion (in 2021 prices) by 2030.
