I'm in my 3 rd year and I've had a very happy time at Bristol. I love the city so much, I'm currently living in Clifton, and I've got a great group of friends. I study history which I love, the teachers are very helpful and interesting. I use the library most days and im a member of the gym. The facilities and library I think are great. However I am not involved in any societies so not sure how good they are. There could be a little more communication between students and proffessors, because I only have about 6 hours of uni a week. Maybe a more hands on approach would create a better community feel within the university.

Bristol University has a wonderful campus that is intergrated into the city and consists of small, traditional houses for seminar locations as well as huge castle-like buildings. The sociology department has great staff from a wide variety of academic backgrounds and the course gives you the freedom to explore the areas you're interested in.

Good campus with nice staff. Many libraries and the books are plenty. The student union is a bit too far, it should be somewhere around Senate House or Tyndall Avenue. Love Source Cafe but their hot food and soup sell out too early in the day at around noon.

Pairing in accomodation was terrible. Terrible uni experience. Seriously considering dropping out to go to another uni.

Student union could be made better use of, it's a good building it just seems that not many events take place there. Some improvements could be made to university accomodation, there are large differences between accommodation and the price often doesn't reflect this.

Great uni, most of the staff are great with good teaching styles for both passing exams and life skills. Would recommend Bristol to anyone thinking of going to uni. Peng buildings too

Everything is great, my course is well organised, well run. The career services are helpful and SU has the most societies of any other uni.

The University has very good facilities for sports and the libraries are very well stocked. The law faculty is very well organised and provides many tutorial opportunities similar to many other instutitons across the country, which leads to plenty of contact time with professors and thus bolsters learning significantly. The Pastoral care and adminstration is notoriously poor especially in the halls of residence which I live in but the facilities in my accommadation are sound.

Great university. I like the staff that are on my course and tutors. I believe that they have helped me and give me a lot of support.

Bristol university is an excellent place to contribute your education. The city itself is wonderful to live in, feeling very warm and homely. It is safe and friendly, which helps in the initial stages of moving to university when one may feel home sick. The university itself is very accomplished, and the staff are very knowledgable and approachable.

Great city with a good vibe. Excellent nightlife and tons of vintage shops to fuel your newfound wardrobe that will inevitably occur when you come here. All university buildings in the same area which makes it more accessible. Student union regularly organises cheap events which is always nice when you're on a budget. Unfortunately the area does have lots of hills but at least you'll get the well known "Bristol bum".

Very solid law department, challenging material and workload but helpful tutors. The city is very enjoyable to live in for many reasons: diverse arts and culture scene, eclectic nightlife, and small size make it rather convenient to get a lot done without wasting excessive time and money on getting around.

The university is lacking in almost every aspect. The halls of residence are overpriced and very basic and the help offered to students who are struggling is non existent. Any difficult situations are dealt with appallingly.

The halls of residences are all very overpriced and basic, the level of help given to students outside of lectures is appalling and the way they deal with difficult situations makes many students regret choosing the university. Although the city itself is almost perfect, the university is lacking in pretty much everything.

The course itself was great for the first year. Lecturers were in the whole friendly and helpful. However, the second year was repetitive and no one on the course told us that in order to register in our profession after we'd finished we'd have to pay over £100. This left many of us, who being students with little money, unable to register straight away and resulted in us working a job and not being paid at the right level for it. I think this reflects the universities wealth and non concern for what they see as small amounts of money, and in fact I received an email from the course leader saying that the marking of our dissertations was less pressing because "graduate employment is perhaps less pressing". A massive disrespect I feel when a majority of the course were working full time far before the course ended to fund ourselves and being paid far less than we should of done, but the university did not see that as a "pressing" matter.

great uni, people can be stuck up at times but the teaching's great, also lectures are recorded so cold days can be spent at home.

My course is very small and therefore allows the lecturers to know us all fairly well. The facilities such as replay are great as they allow you to never fall behind.

The campus is so good for students even the students there are very friendly and could get out with them easily also you can get a student internship if your grades are good

It is a very traditional university but I feel like the university holds back on putting money into accommodation or lecture theatres because it just relies on being traditional. It does, however, have some world class lecturers that are very willing to help you. I have met some lovely people st the uni and everyone seems willing to do things for fairness and equality. Mental health is something that is especially focused on currently which is great to see.

The University of Bristol is in my opinion a top university which harbours talents and intellectuals in all fields. The high level of education and the great quality of its facilities allow the students to hone their abilities and delve into whatever subjects, activities and areas which interest them. The one downside of the university is the speed at which they respond to complaints or requests; however, that being said I would recommend it to anyone taking their a levels at the moment. It's in a top city. Full of top people...and full of bottoms but lets not get too down about it. Focus on the positive. And there's a lot of positives to focus on here at the best university in south west England. That must be 100 words.

Great university, made me feel very welcome. Good campus, good facilities, good course, not much diversity but better than some other west country unis.

Studying veterinary science and love the interactive and practical nature of this course. With a majority of the course in Bristol city there is the chance to live a city life unlike some of the other universities offering veterinary as a degree.

I love my course it is childhood studies and it means I get to learn from all different subjects including psychology, sociology, health. I never get bored of it and gives me a lot of options for when I finished. The campus is good there is lots of new nice study spaces you can always find, the library is good although can get very busy. I have had a great experience although it is concerning the amount of suicides that have been reported from the university.
