I am in my third year at the University of Bristol and feel that I can write an honest review about being a student here. COURSES AVAILABLE There are a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses available to study including Bachelors and Masters Degrees as well as Doctorates and Higher...

Hilly, fairly expensive accomodation

I loved my time at Bristol Uni, and wish I had another year to go. In my first year I was in halls in Stoke Bishop, which involved a 40 minute trek in to uni everyday. There are halls in Clifton, only 10 minutes away, which also allow you to experience the nightlife more easily, however, most...

When I first arrived in Bristol and saw the Wills Memorial Building - the law building, I was in awe of its architecture and when I visited the rest of the campus, I knew I had made the right choice of coming here to study instead of the other two universities that I've turned down. MY COURSE: I...

Im actually now a second year, and over half way through my actual degree (a very scary thought!) I havent been on ciao for a while and thought i'd get back into the swing of things by updating a few opinions. About a year has past since i first wrote my opinion of Bristol University, so its...

“Bristol Blues”

published 12/01/2001

Beautiful city with good night life.

Many - see above!

I applied to Bristol University in 1999 and started an undergraduate degree in the October of that year. I did not have a very good experience at all. The university is ideal if you originate from a rich background, preferably having been treated to a private education. I however, did not belong...

“Reach for the Stars”

published 10/01/2001

So many opportunities

Snobbish reputation (undeserved)

I'm a first year law student at the University of Bristol, and i'm having the time of my life! If you are interested in studying here (which i strongly recommend if you are dedicated - to working hard and playing hard!) one word of warning - it rains LOTS and there is a large amount of walking to...

Not for me

Nice campus, good teaching

Very poor admin for entrants, slow and fussy, not ...

It seems to me that Bristol is a nightmare to get an offer of a place on a course. My boyfriend applied there to study physics through UCAS. The universities are supposed to reply to the applicant by something like March, but Bristol were late responding (by more that just a couple of days)...

“A good Uni - in a great city”

published 29/12/2000

Great nightlife, good uni

Some parts of the city to avoid

Bristol is one of the old style unis, and is one of the harder ones to get into UCAS points wise... however, once you're in I found that the equiptment they have for the course I want to do is first class, not to mention the good atmosphere. The only slight critisism is that it doesn't have much...

“Bristol University for You?”

published 17/07/2000

Top Rated University by any league table

Hills

Bristol University is one of the most popular universities apart from Oxford and Cambridge. Grades required to get a place here are quite high but well worth a place on the UCAS form. On the whole Bristol is a friendly city, just big enough to cater for huge shopping complexes (Cribbs Causeway)...

“Better than Oxbridge”

published 10/08/2000

Reputation, teaching, city, student life

Cost, hills

I have recently finished a four year degree at the University of Bristol and am absolutely convinced that it was the best choice I could have made. I was not an "Oxbridge Reject", but nevertheless know many people who were - by the end of the first year they were also thoroughly satisfied with...

“Not convinced”

published 21/07/2000

It's lovely, fun and erm... lovely

In the West Country (who have I offended?)

I have just finished my second year at Bristol, and although I know that it now has the reputation of being far more "cliquey" than either Oxford or Cambridge, I am not entirely sure that it lives up to its reputation. Teaching aside, Bristol is a beautiful city. Being a Londoner myself, I find...

“Go where?”

published 16/07/2000

Good nightlife and quality education

rough area

I visited the open day and was very impressed. So much so i have decided to apply there. However the grades required are high so i will have to work hard!! I think you should check this place out. The nightlife is very good as it is situated in a large city. This is also however means fairly high...
