Bristol is a fantastic student city with some of the most beautiful green spaces, riverside walks, historical architecture and urban art of any city in the UK. There are three main areas of central Bristol; the Harbourside and Park Street, Clifton Village, and Cabot Circus/Broadmead. All have great shops and restaurants, although Cabot is the main shopping area. Clifton is a bit more expensive but is really beautiful with lots of independent shops. The Triangle and Park Street are where to go for clubs, bars and nightlife and are pretty good value for money. For a student, there's plenty to do including tourist attractions, museums, art galleries and parks and woodland. Overall a wonderful city and a wonderful student experience.

The vibe and overall ethos of Bristol is exactly what I wanted from my university experience. There's so much to see and do, and because there are so many like-minded students about there's never a dull day- everyone just seems happy all the time! :)

A fantastic city and part of the reason I chose my university. If you are a law student, it is great as there are so many law firms but isn't as daunting as London. Everything is close together and there are so many places to explore, including amazing independent food places.

Course (Politics) had great professors but way too many privileged private school boys on the course who rather spoiled the seminars. Student support was dire. Uni knew about my mental health since before I arrived and yet no support would be given unless you reached out to ask for it- even if you missed months of classes. The city is wonderful- eclectic and diverse in a way the university isn’t. The SU is full of well meaning and helpful people but is massively underfunded (like student services).

Bristol quickly felt like home when I moved to the city from the countryside. It is a real hodgepodge of places, ensuring there's a little bit of something for everyone. Just a few miles out, over the suspension bridge are the lush green spaces of leigh woods, stokes croft offers a wealth of alternative culture and art, park street a long uphill slog punctuated by fun independent shops. The food on offer is delicious and varied, and a student budget can be easily managed by being spent at the small greengrocers or asian-marts. In terms of nightlife, there's something for everyone again - whether cheesy pop music at SWX or the triangle, a good LGBT+ nightout at queenshilling or the offerings of something with a decent bassline at blue mountain.

Bristol is well known for its bustling nightlife and it honestly lives up to that its expectations. From a quite pint at the pub to dancing your socks off at one of wide variety of nightclubs. My favourite part about Bristol is the food! At the centre of Bristol is St Nicholas Market whilst it’s known for selling various nick nacks and trinkets, the food hall is highly underrated. Finding a hot meal that’s under £10 can’t be hard in busy city but St Nicks won’t disappoint.

Bristol is a great student city for students. It has two big universities and its a great city for university life. There is many student-related events and opportunities for students around the city all year. It is easy to find student accommodations around the city in any specific area. Nightlife is great and offers something for everyone.

I've loved my time living in Bristol, it's an amazingly diverse city where there's always something exciting going on and somewhere new to explore. As a rock climber it's also amazing to have the Avon gorge right in the city too. The traffic is awful so buy a bike!

University of the west of England is such a diverse and well organised university, it is located in a great modern part of Bristol with easy access to the main attractions of the city! Students are also able to enjoy themselves with the regular events around Bristol, the harbour side is one of the many beautiful parts of Bristol that invites talent, art and socialising! It’s a great university in a self aware city!

Bristol is a really beautiful city, and the location is ideal. There are numerous clubs and bars and these are all easily accessible either by foot or a very short bus or taxi journey. If nights out are not a preference, then there is still so much to do. Bristol's harbourside and docks are breathtakingly beautiful, especially at sunset, when one can sit at the riverside and revel in the view. Shops are close by too, whether it be food supermarkets or retail department stores. There is a big shopping centre that houses many popular stores which further makes Bristol an ideal location.

There really are so many amazing things to do in Bristol! Whether you're looking for a great day out with the whole family, a romantic break for two or an epic solo adventure we know you’ll find just what you’re looking for here. So let’s get started by reminding you of all the famous things to do in Bristol: Clifton Suspension Bridge, Brunel’s ss Great Britain, Bristol Balloon Fiesta and Banksy street art tours. These things make up our fine city and are certainly not-to-be-missed. But don’t think for one second the fun ends there… we’ve got underground gigs for music lovers, gorgeous green spaces for relaxation, historic houses and museums full of intrigue, cutting-edge art galleries and independent cinemas, cool restaurants and bars, some marvellous markets

Bristol is a great city with so much to do and so many places to visit. In good weather, College Green, Brandon Hill and Queens Square are popular haunts. Foodwise you have gourmet pizza from Pizzarova, dirty burgers from Ooh Wee and top notch gelato from Swoon. The nights out can vary from delirious nostalgia at places like Popworld and La Rocca, to finding your perfect event at Motion or Lakota with a choice of disco, drum and bass, jungle, and dance club nights. The value for money overall is what you make it, Bristol is affordable enough for even the most frugal folk.

Bristol is a very vibrant city with lots of things to do. If u love shopping, the city has 2 big shopping malls, Cabot Circus and Cribs Causeway which both has all the major stores and brands. Nightlife is amazing and caters to all types of people, ranging from warehouse raves (house, drum and bass, techno) to a more commercial club (chart music, commercial, edm etc). Value for money is decent with rents being affordable for students. When I had to move out of halls after first year, most people I knew found houses with rents ranging from £290 - £450, which is decent I think. There is of course more expensive houses available to rent for 2nd/3rd students, if you can afford it.

Bristol provides a university experience for all types of students, you can get as involved in local cultures as you want or take a quieter approach! You can walk from one end to the other easily and choose the vibe you want, from Clifton which is slightly posher to stoke Croft and St. Paul’s which is perfect for a night out and streaming with many vibrant cultures! The food scene is top notch, eating in or out! Independent restaraunts offer amazing food and vibes through out the city, st Nicholas’ market offers incredible street food and many of your favourite places are available on Deliveroo! You’re never short of a place for a night out whether it be a Wednesday, Saturday or Sunday - pubs, club or live music!

The location of Bristol in the Wild Wild West of England may initially be deceiving. It is actually one of the liveliest, student-orientated cities I have ever visited (although of course I am biased). There are plenty of things to do if you can handle the hills. From walking up Cabot tower or hanging out around harbourside or up on the downs, to shopping in Cabot Circus, broadmead or cribbs causeway. There are often events throughout the year. Films are shown in the caves for Halloween, the balloon festa displays light displays of Hot air balloons every summer and there are many more that seem to pop up every couple of weeks. It is also easy enough to go on day trips to bath/ the south west, Birmingham and the North or even over to London (which is less than 1.5 hours by train or 3 on the coach). The night life is diverse. An edgier scene can be found along Gloucester Road in the notoirios motion and lacota whereas for a cheesier night out or a night with clubs and societies, there are lounge, bunker, agora, Pam pams (where you are likely to meet UWE students) and Lola lo’s all within 2 minutes walk from each other. There are many more clubs but if you don’t feel like clubbing, there are a number of large pubs very near the uni including 2 weatherspoons. There is also a lot of food to choose from... the 2nd largest all you can eat restaraunt in Britain is here: zaza bazar and there are many other restaraunts popular with students. There are simply too many to name but a few are: the stable, burger joint, wahacca (although I think they have just got rid of their student discount), pizza express (40% student discount) and many many more. The only problem is, as mentioned before, you HAVE to be prepared to handle the hills of the West Country which can be intense. The transport around the city is not great and is fairly expensive. The bus is the only option as even if you are a rich bitch with banker parents, a car won’t get you anywhere as there is no parking (great for the environment though)! You can bike around but the hills can be tough and you don’t really need to as student land only really stretches from the train station to the downs. One really big downside is the cost. Everything will cost a pretty penny even with the student discounts, in particular the accommodation is one of the most expensive outside of London... although there are some slightly cheaper places if you search hard and early on.
