“My beloved Uni”

published 23/09/2001

Friendly

Parking

I nearly missed graduating from UWE by missing one exam. Having been here four years already I thought I'd tell you about it. First of all the Student Union, cant moan too much cos I was a SU Executive Officer last year. The guys do a really good job, but the apathy of the students is amazing...

buses, limited parking in town, frenchay

I have been living and studying in bristol at UWE for over two months now and i'm still loving it. What initially made up my mind about coming to bristol was primarily the great music scene - if you're in the know, there's always some really good gigs and stuff going on all over the place...

Hi i am a wheelchair user, not one of those old types who fits in the stereotype but a different crazy bonkers much younger sort. Well enough about me, currently i am a student at this Uni (UWE) and i would just like to say its not bad at all. Well the nightlife is good and the staff friendly...

high crime rate

I myself am on a year out from university, after completing two years at UWE. I simply can't wait to return in September for my final year! The size of the university may seem scary at first, but when you get to know it isn't that bad at all. The level of teaching is very high, and I have always...

“Why here?”

published 13/11/2000

Rich, varied nightlife. Lots to do. Good resources...

Some bad accomodation. Class numbers.

If you're thinking of coming to university and UWE is one of your choices I'd think about what you really want from university, and what you like. Bristol is a fairly big city and maybe if you're coming from the country it could be a bit of a culture shock and you may not get on with it. But if...

Needs a bit of a touch up

I'm a first year pschology BSc student. I realise I'm going to sound biased when I say I LOVE my university. Now I don't get out much, so coming to university has just been overwhelming! I study on the frenchay campus, and I absolutely love it. The only downside is that some bits are a bit boring...

“I loved this place”

St Matthias

Frenchay

Whilst it's only come 67th in this years Times league table, I don't much care! Having spent the past 2 years at UCL studying for an MA, having completed my BA at UWE, I can honestly say I would recommend this university to anyone wishing to study in the Humanities faculty at St. Matthias over...

Lack of books, little community feel, no parking!

It's easy to look back at your University years as being some of the best days of your life. People also naturally hype the Uni that they attended because its the only thing they know. UP THE UWE! I attended UWE between 1994 to 1997 and had an excellent time - I studied Politics and Sociology...

“The Dogs B*****s”

published 16/08/2000

I am a second year BASA student and believe that not only is UWE academically sound but Bristol is buzzing and all A level students should head for the heart of the South West. Nightlife, employment, and accomodation the three most importnat issues to todays students, are all easily located. It...

Good location, good social atmosphere

Overcrowding and lack of suitable accomodation

I had a pretty good time at UWE, however I did find the biological sciences course highly oversubscribe and run by very overworked and over stressed lecturers. There was a large mix of full time and part time students in lecture theatres as well as quite a number of mature students. The...

easy access

parking, seventies concrete

I was at this university for 4 years (with a gap year). The facilities were good,99% of the staff were very very nice (faculty dean was a bit of a cow) and the course I did was great. Didnt live on site as commuted from miles away so cant tell you about the nightlife. Overall atmosphere is very...

good variety

hard

Hello and welcome to my first opinion on the university of the West of England. I am a computing student and i would just like to comment on the variety of courses avaliable in this block. There are about 5-10 different types of computer courses but as they are modular you can also cover a wide...

“Accommodation”

published 20/09/2000

cheap

depends where you live

Hello all you possible UWE students. I would just like to tell you where all the best accommodation is. Well Carol Court is the name of the housing area on Frenchay campus, this is handy for going to lectures but no good for going out at night. The most popular areas for students are (get a map...

Not for me

Quite a nice coffee shop

a stressful, disorganised and badly taught course

I just had to write and share this with any unlucky person who decides to do a PGCE. PPPPLEASE don't go to UWE - it's so disorganised, there isn't enough support on the course and you go into placements without knowing how to teach!! They don't send you to schools which are nearby and having...
