The Best of Bristol Lectures (BoB for short) are a series of exciting and inspirational events showcasing the University of Bristol’s best lecturers and their teaching and research.
Driven by the student community, the series’ goals are to celebrate great teaching as an integral part of academia, to celebrate Bristol as an academic community and to inspire students and the wider public to take an interest in new subjects.
The 2015 Best of Bristol lecturers have been nominated by students and academic societies, and take place on the main University precinct and also around student residences. Tickets and further information are available from each event’s page on Eventbrite via the links below.
