Fiercely independent, daringly unconventional. Welcoming, open, diverse and safe. It is – and can only be – Bristol.
Bristol is a hotbed of creativity, commerce, innovation, research and tech. (Not to mention music, fashion, sport, culture, clubs, food, free museums, free art galleries – even an inland surfing lagoon.) Home to start-ups and shared workspaces, professional bodies, business incubators and multinationals, including the likes of Rolls-Royce, BBC, Airbus and Intel. All of which, as far as you’re concerned, means incredible work experience, placement and employment opportunities right on your doorstep.
And while Bristol is a city that doesn’t follow the crowd, it’s well connected for international travel, with an international airport, two major railway stations and a coach station. (London’s just 90 minutes away by train.)
We appreciate that there’s more to your UWE Bristol experience than your course. Music, sports, community projects, support networks. Getting involved in extra-curricular groups and activities will not only enrich your student life, but also show potential employers that there’s more to you than just a great degree.
With over 160 societies and clubs to choose from, you’re sure to find something for you. In fact, we have over 7,000 members of sports clubs, societies and networks. And there’s an Advice Centre when you need it too. Get involved, meet new people, have fun. That’s all part of the UWE Bristol experience.
