I studied at Bower Ashton Campus and even though at times I wanted to drop out, I have super fond memories of the place. I graduated with a first class degree and couldn’t have loved my lecturers and peers more. Super helpful staff, such a lovely city to explore and the nightlife is A+ (Thekla Thursday will kill you)!

UWE make a great act of caring and being the best, but when you really do end up needing help and assistance they toss you to the side and force you through the most purposely painfully long corrupt system possible. If you’re on frenchay campus uwe will be a good university. If you’re on Glenside (allied health professions) don’t even bother. The halls are awful, the department is shambles. You’ll be made to feel like you don’t matter to anyone. Oh and, especially AVOID Sports rehabilitation.

The lecturer are alight. Some of them are good but some of them are really really bad. They come to lecture without preparation. The UWE itself isn’t organised. They attached old regulations with the marks which misguided me. When I raised the issue, they agreed that it was wrong but didn’t compensate me for their mistake. Why would anyone study in a university where their regulations are not accurate or misguiding. On top of everything, student has to suffer for their mistake. I lost first class honours because of universities mistake. I appealed for my marks as I thought it was unfair on me. They rejected my appeal. They updated their regulations but didn’t compensate my loss. If I wasn’t misguided because of their regulations or I wasn’t supposed to be misguided or if it is my fault that I got misguided then why did they update the regulations. Seriously guys, save yourself from UWE. I have ruined my 3 years already. Don’t ruin yours. University is expensive so chose wisely

Terrible service from a terribly run institution. Lack of organisation has resulted in many issues amongst my cohort ranging from lecturers not knowing how to answer questions based on what they are teaching, wrongly published marks- creating false hopes then completely demoralising you, timetables being issued one day before the start of a semester, the list can go on. Since I started my degree I have had to deal with countless issues such as parking to get to my lectures and being penalised as their car parks are packed to the brim. Communication during Covid-19 has been terrible also, no sense of care towards students, all they care for is getting money in the bank. Very quick to issue fines and chase up outstanding payments, but trying to get help is a mission in itself. I would not recommend UWE to anyone after 3 years studying with them. And to pay £9,250 as well is just a joke.

Teaching is Great, facilities are nice. Overall the campus has really good vibes. But the support staff are absolutely useless, it's like they don't even care. Honestly if you have problems with anything that can't be helped just by your lectures then you are royally screwed. Also if you have any mental health issues, go private or off campus,

Awesome campus, it doesn’t feel empty or alone unlike UoB. There is a stronger sense of community here than most campuses. The prices at the student shop are a bit overpriced as there was inflation. The food served at Onezone has also improved, and the subway was a solid addition. Unfortunately I won’t be around to enjoy the new engineering building which is absolutely amazing.
