I've just finished my first year studying Italian and Spanish at Bristol uni and I would recommend it to anyone. The course has been fascinating so far; what's great is that the syllabus is so varied - we've studied a variety of different works of literature, such as plays, diary entries, novels, which also incorporates quite of a bit of history. We've also obviously studied the languages, and having began Italian as a beginner, I am so impressed with how much I have learned in such a short space of time. Despite this, the workload hasn't been overly heavy. My teacher's have been thoroughly supportive and engaging, it really helps that they are native speakers of the language, as I am assured I am learning to speak authentically. We've had the ability to chose our modules for next year and I'm already so excited to start - I have chosen international politics, women in post-war Spain and Italian novellas.

Doing bioveterinary science and veterinary nursing has its perks! You get a two degrees at the end of it and you're basically walking straight into a job! The work is fun and the course is small so it becomes a very close community. Some time is spent at Langford which is very pretty but unfortunately far away which means you have to get up very early to be there by 9! Third year is almost a placement year with only a few teaching days. I'm currently in year 2 so am looking forward to next year! The fourth year is spent doing a dissertation. The course is hard work, i spend most of my life tired. But it's very rewarding :)

So far, as a first year, I have very much enjoyed the History course at Bristol. In the first term, the department introduces compulsory modules - Approaching the Past, an introduction to the British Empire and an introduction to Medieval History. Whilst I personally would not have chosen those modules necessarily, with hindsight I'm pleased that they were compulsory; doing modules which aren't necessarily the most interesting to you makes it far easier to discover what you are interested given the broad scope of historical study. In second term, I have chosen all of my modules and have very much enjoyed them - there was a huge range of choice, and the combination of both examination based modules and coursework based modules makes the term far less stressful. This term I have one exam, which is worth 100% of one module. The other two modules I take are assessed by 1 summative essay each. I have enjoyed the teaching within the History department, and academics do attempt to push their students to think creatively and historiographically. For me, however, one disadvantage has been the shortage of contact hours in relation to the number of hours spent on independent study, but I recognise this is typical of all history degrees. Overall, interesting course with plenty of support and freedom of choice as the degree progresses!

Science and Success is a slightly abstract module, especially when compared to the other modules studied throughout the course. In each year you will be expected to undertake multiple modules each which are normally weighted as 10 credits, however Science and Success is actually worth double a normal unit and is weighted as 20 credits. It is designed to give the students an insight and a headstart into applying for internships or graduate jobs.

This module is not applicable to be covered in a semester and the modules seems disjointed to one and another. The module also quite complicated for student to understand

This course examines how mathematics can be used to explain biological systems and kinematics. I have really enjoyed the applicability of the module, and the teaching has been really good! This is only a 10cp module so was only 6 weeks long, but the lecture notes are really well structured and closely related the the set homework problems. Some parts of the course (statistical mechanics) are really hard, but as it is a third year module this is what you would expect.

This module combined taught lectures on statistical methods, with an eye to helping you involve them in your work and also to using them in the future. Taught by Mircea Popa, an lecturer with experience in American and British universities, the unit is complex but engaging. A project is conducted alongside the research, whereby a dataset is chosen and students get to choose their research question based on this. It is a fun experience and sets you up for the third year dissertation.

Really enthusiastic and interesting teaching made this module. Professor managed to gain full class interaction which led to really insightful thoughts given by members. Note-taking for the assignments and exam was certainly aided!

Highly interesting content, but in enough depth to really stimulate your learning. A lot of reading involved but I find that this helps with a lot of other theory-based modules as well as more technical econometric papers. Debates fascinating and a focus on policy opportunities which makes the whole module feel highly relevant.

The lecturer is really great, there's a lot of support and guidance despite the vast range of topics that people cover, and there's a huge amount of opportunity to focus on areas of the project which will develop skills you need for the future/job applications.
