Most helpful review

Overall good experience, with great facilities and technical support. Can't comment on Clubs and Societies as most of those are more active in Frenchay while I spent most of my time at Bower Ashton and Arnolfini. However, enough activities and things are going on most of the time.

Some of the building are dated, but the new business building is amazing. If you choose a business related course, you’ll get a quality degree. If you want to do a humanities course I would look at University of Bristol.

As a Business Student I was able to experience the brand new business building, which has an extremely cool modern feel to it as well as a great canteen area. I personally didn’t go to many societies (just drama) but at the society fair there were hundreds of options and many of my friends loved some of their societies. The SU is also really new which was great, it has some cool facilities such as a pool table and the drinks there are nice. I’ve heard the food is pretty good too! However a small criticism is there was a toilet door that wasn’t replaced for a while and also it’s a tiny bit in the small side. I personally never really used careers due to having a clear idea anyway, so I just put this as a 3. The internet is pretty good, eduroam works well and does its job, though sometimes it can get a tad slow due to heavy traffic, though it is always fine for work purposes.

UWE has a fantastic support network for students. The staff genuinely care about the students and that's shown by great events the SU puts on and the services they provide like accommodation help, the job shop and wellbeing services. The careers service is also really helpful, especially because you can use it for a year after you graduate! UWE also supports students socially by showcasing their awesome societies, there are so many to choose from! You will definitely be able to find a great friendship group joining a society, no matter what your interests are :)

Uni is great here however, my experience with some of the faculty has not been 100% positive. Biggest one would be like lack of communication (not responding to any emails). Some of them however are brilliant but my main experience is waiting for emails as they're hard to get hold of or would prefer an email

Come from a low income background so UWE has offered much help and support in terms of bursaries and any kind of emotional support past this. Also helped out friends of mine that suffer from mental health conditions, especially those who’s have been aggravated by uni lifestyle. Don’t walk around on campus much but library is extensive and there’s always room to sit. Didn’t like the SU in freshers but haven’t really been back since.

Unfortuantly so far my experience in terms of tutoring has been crap. I'm studying animation, and well, I've taught myself more on my own than in any workshops / lectures given. At the end of the day, I'm paying a callosal amount of money, so it's only fair that I expect to learn something.. at least.

While UWE Bristol offers amazing courses and very knowldgable staff, I believe that the university lacks in sufficient support, particularly from colloboration between the student support team and the staff themselves. Having come with several difficulties including pregnancy and personal circumstances, I believe that not enough was done or provided to ensure that I get the best support available. Instead it was made to feel like I had to fill out countless forms and never get a proper answer, rather than just speak personally to staff and have them support me. Other than that, the university does provide a great learning path for all students of all ages.

UWE staff are friendly and helpful, the blackboard website allows us to quickly and easily access all the information I need for my course and the facilities are excellent! My course is engaging, the workload is balanced and I am taught a good mixture of practical skills and theory. Anything you need, you are provided with. I’d recommend anyone to attend the University of the West of England.

This is a great university that supports all its students. I have made lifelong friends here and have studied a great course at the same time.

Worst experience ever at UWE, having studied my nursing degree at the Glenside campus. Very poor support for students who suffer from mental health problems, all the university seemed to do was put barriers up. I wasn't allowed to complete my course even having done the full 3 years academic work completing with a 2:1 they wouldn't allow me to complete hours required by NMC to get my pin, so I wasted three years at the university. Seminars and lectures poorly organised, one thing I will say is my personal tutors (after having a different one each year because of staff leaving) were all really good, they supported me but thepeople higher up would not. The food is over priced, accommodation on Glenside is over priced and of a very poor quality, no wireless internet in your room and for nearly £600 a month it's extortionate. good travel links around the university to the city and other campus but obviously you have to pay for that travel. I wish I chose another university sadly.

Course was awful, studied fine art which was very focused on conceptual art with virtually no skills taught. Only 5 hours a week of tuition (if you could call it that). There were 1-2 hour workshops on Fridays for screenprinting and other skills but these were often cancelled or so brief they weren't worth attending. Lecturers were clearly failed artists trying to push their ideas onto students. The course was a complete waste of money, going to Bristol for three years, meeting new people and enjoying the city was great. Don't waste your money go to a real university or throw £25,000 out of a window.

The students union at uwe is very small. They are good for ensuring low prices for products the uni sells which is good. There are a wide range if v facilities available including the library and sports centre.

In terms of the actual campus, it's really not too bad, again I expected more because on an open day the uni only showed some of their best facilities, when you actually go to the uni and start studying the rooms and favilities are actually very old and really overused, the uni is just too crowded and personally I think the new su is a waste, I much preferred the old style pub su which felt far more like a students pub that whatever you want to call it now.

I'm on Glenside campus. Beautiful, old building and grounds. Very modern and new on the inside. Student union at Glenside is a bit run down and the student shop is quite expensive. However, the student union on Frenchay campus is brand new and lovely. No free bus travel which is disappointing. £1 single ticket between campuses which builds up money. The alternative is a 30 minute walk uphill which is fine on a summers day. Less clubs and societies than I thought there would be but there are plenty of sport, musical and international student societies, if they suit you.

Enjoyable first year. Stayed in the brand new Wallscourt accommodation which was great but clearly built on a budget. Accommodation staff were rude and sometimes entered your flat without warning.

I study at Bower, which is a lovely campus. Not too crowded, but there's always people around. Staff are very helpful and friendly all the time. There's a deer park next to the building, which is nice to look at if you're bored.. Plus plenty of green space of course. The library is good, you can hire macbooks out for the day, we have a super awesome editing/work centre (EPI centre), where the trained staff can help you with software and stuff. Internet is quite fast. Media centre and print centre is also free to use for anyone and you can hire out pretty much anything you could need (eg cameras, camcorders, sound equipment, etc), and use their facilities to make stuff (we have letterpress, etching, screen print, and other fun stuff). The bus service to and from campus can be a pain, but it's manageable.

Lovely campus, just wished it had a swimming pool! Got everything else you could wish for though! Close to supermarkets, restaurents and maccies too :) Plenty of sports clubs and performing arts/music activities to choose from, just wish there were more acahemic/interest societies (debating, subject societies, etc). The students union will probably be better next year because they're building a new one, but I wish they did more on campus activities. Like halls freshers and sports matches, and nights out, etc. Wifi available throughout. Academic facilites are good :) The careers centre is good too, as is the FET one in Q block, if you're studying a subject in that faculty. Bristol is a nice city to live in too :)
