The Best Student Life. Bristol SU

The Best of Bristol lecture series (BoB) is an annual initiative showcasing the best of the University of Bristol's lecturers. BoB is student-led, the lecturers and lecture topics are nominated by students and the series of 6 lectures are organised by students and supported by the University of Bristol and Bristol Students’ Union.

The BoB series aims to:

  • Inspire students to take an interest in subjects outside of their main discipline
  • Give students a taster of the wide range of disciplines taught at the University 
  • Celebrate the excellent teaching at the University
  • Celebrate the University’s vibrant learning community

All students and academic societies are invited to nominate a lecturer who has inspired them (at any point during their time at university), and they feel that students outside their discipline will enjoy hearing from.

Voting is open until Monday 16 December at 9am.

You can watch previous BoB lectures here, and find out more about the lecture series here.

Nomination criteria
The BoB Comittee would like you to spend a few minutes reflecting on the lecturers you have been taught by; think about who students would want to hear from? Who will inspire other students? Who will they learn from?

Selection criteria
From the nominations received, the BoB committee will decide the final list of lecturers. The committee will take into account:

  • Representation of lecturers from across the school and faculties
  • Balance of individual student and society-led nominations
  • Representation from a diverse range of speakers
