Really good uni for facilities and courses. Not great that the student union was closed for half of my time at the uni and it's a bit far away. Because it's not campus based there arent any shops but all the big departments have cafes.

Studying at University of Bristol

An incredibly popular University, with around 14 applications per undergraduate place, Bristol University has been ranked 28th in the QS World University Rankings. Bristol is known for its strong research element and also for high quality teaching and courses including Civil Engineering, Biological Sciences, Mathematics and Psychology.

The six faculties at Bristol University are all supported by a strong research which keeps them at the forefront in delivering teaching. The University also has one of the biggest Schools of Law in the country and is known for its centre for Nano science and Quantum information, which is undertaking ground-breaking research. The University has multiple libraries, hosting the largest collection of books and journals in the South West with its largest collection being in the Arts and Social Sciences library.

Situated in the South West of England and built around the River Avon, Bristol is a thriving city, but is easily accessible on foot or by bike. As well as the city life, Bristol offers green area such as Clifton Down and Durdham Down, perfect for cycling, jogging and walking as well as sports practices. Bristol also offers the harbour side; take a boat or canoe out on to the river or walk along the harbour side which is lined with museums, bars and cafes. Other leisure activities include the O2 Academy and Colston Hall offer live music, The Watershed for films and media and a plethora of clubs, pubs and bars.

Accommodation can be found across the city and all within easy access to the University buildings. Choose from Clifton or the city residences, or the more communal halls at Stoke Bishop. Students can choose from catered or self-catered halls, en-suite bedrooms, shared bathrooms or a shared room for a cheaper option.



In terms of sport, Bristol University takes pride in its sport, organised by the Athletics Union.

Bristol is a great uni for the arts and humanities (what I do ) - the extra curricular side is immense - from sci- fi soc to your classic drama societies and a wide array of music societies - there is literally something for everyone to get involved with. my first year I wasn't a massive fan of my accommodation (Churchill hall) but I think its partly the luck of the draw - I just had to find my friends through my subject and extra -curriculars. Bristol is a brilliant place to live with about 40 different things going on at once (at least lol) - just remember YOU CAN'T DO EVERYTHING :)

Amazing student union and building, so much going on- they also have gender neutral toilets which I think is really cool. The wifi (eduroam) is everywhere in places you can't even imagine.

Total lack of academic support, but great academic reputation - so good degrees are harder to get than they need to be but well worth it. Student Union has the campaigning passion of a donkey.
