Just left.. sob.. I will miss it so Review with images

AdvantagesExcellent, well recognised Univeristy, great social life, Biology excellent

DisadvantagesHilly, 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 students are based in Stoke Bishop. There is a student bus which operates in the evening taking 'jolly' loads of students into town if you get bored with your ..." Read review

MY COURSE: I studied an MSc in Development and Security which is a taught postgraduate course in the Politics Department. My year's intake for taught postgrads ..." Read review

AdvantagesBeautiful city with good night life.

DisadvantagesMany - 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 to this upper-class mentality and did not find the institution very welcoming for state school students. I know for a fact that the university is very ..." Read review
