University of Bristol
World University Rankings 2014-15
With its motto from Horace, "Vim promovet insuitam" ("Learning promotes one's innate power"), Bristol serves about 23,000 students, with two undergraduates for every postgraduate. It is the city's largest employer - a far cry from 1876, when its first lecture drew only 99 students. Sir Winston Churchill was chancellor from 1929 until his death in 1965.
