The organization collaborates with the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and accredits its graduate programs. An additional adult nursing cohort is headquartered at Gloucester Campus, while the majority of the Faculty of Health and Applied Sciences is housed in Frenchay and Glenside campuses. Animal sciences, sport, equestrian, agriculture, and conservation are all taught at Hartpury Campus.
