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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

The university is generally excellent when it comes to teaching (law). There is a wide range of subjects and modules on offer, with staff having a diverse range of interests and specialisms. The option to study 6 modules per year rather than the usual 4 is an additional plus. The campus itself is extensive and ever growing. The facilities are also well maintained. The libraries are extravagant - though during exam season you are unlikely to find a seat! There are some books/readings not on offer at the library which can be frustrating, but tutors generally try to make provision for that. Sports facilities are decent. There are also many clubs and societies to get involved with.

The Univeristy of Bristol has an amazing campus, and a great range of courses with good integration between the courses so as to be able to socialise. If I could improve anything it would be the organisation of the university and their ability to publicise and advertise events successfully.

The accommodation I am in has been tricky since there has hardly been any functioning hot water whilst i have stayed here. The lectures for my course are good yet lack Organisation in terms of support when needing extra information and or help accessing extra reading sites. The sports facilities are good yet would be better if open 24 hours rather than short opening times.

Campus is really pretty and lots of study spaces (although they do get full at busy seasons). Careers service is excellent. SU is far and very bad for social events - no club or anything (and freshers was poor). Sports Centre is good but ends up being pricey.

Good uni, would recommend to a friend, bit far from home but very enjoyable, good course but lacking in support sometimes, student union doesn't do much and wastes money, vice cancelled doesn't care

The facilities are very good, the careers service has lots of useful workshops and is very active however the student's union is not the best as doesn't bring the uni together

I study chemistry and I think the school has some of the best facilities compared to most other universities, however I'm concerned that the focus on undergraduates will mean that postgraduate issues will become ignored. I think the university lacks are large study space for everyone. Seems to be a large focus on minorities in science which is good but isn't inclusive of everyone

My accommodation is quite far but genreally it's really nice. People are so friendly and hospitable. The core program is good with a lot of necessary facilities and helpful staffs. The careers service are so nice which helps me a lot.

Campus' is really nice and with lots of cool buildings. Careers service is really good particarly for law and overall facilities are good. Student union is okay, can't say I know anyone who goes there though. Law is an interesting course but it is tough, and sometimes difficult to balance, one particular downfall is that law students don't get a reading week. The staff are generally really nice and helpful however a few bad eggs

I am a disabled student and I do not receive adequate care. I also believe that some of the personal tutors do not put an effort into aiding their students through the university course.

Bristol university isn't an incredible place to learn and have fun. The teaching is at an incredibly high standard, with praised international academics. Although the university is not a campus university, it still has the same feeling - and it means you get to explore more of this exciting and bustling city. I would fully recommend to anyone considering their university choices

An excellent uni, in an amazing city. Everywhere is in walking distance but big enough to feel like a proper city. Uni provides a lot of support for each individual student and there is a lot of opportunities for research.
