It has an amazing reputation and that’s about the only good thing. Absolutely no help for mental health or struggling students, do not care in the slightest about any students wellbeing and the only thing that they are concerned about is the grades you achieve. I’m baffled at the way the university treats students and since coming to uni have had no support and only been made to feel belittled and un-intelligent by staff (one time it was so awful I reported it and of course nothing came of it).

Bristol Uni really has something for everyone. I've found it really easy to make friends and avoid people I may not like because it's so big. The best thing about Bristol is the city, It's such a cool city to live in as a young person and there's always something to do. You're pushed academically but the uni still has a fun feel.

Course review , 31/05/2017

MEng (Hons) Aerospace Engineering
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

My first year at University of Bristol was simply just above average. First year of Aerospace Engineering was filled with so much theory and practicals and I personally found it very challenging. We had the privilege to study other mandatory units from other departments like Mechancial Engineering and Engineering Maths. Luckily, first year did not count towards my overall degree and it simply a taster of what comes next.

MBChB Medicine

So my experience of medicine at Bristol has been fantastic. Year 1 sets you up with basic scientific knowledge and towards the end of the year you get to start looking at the cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems. Year 2 gives you an insight into neurology, renal and gastrointestinal medicine. After year 2, half the year either intercalate (I chose to do physiology) or continue into third year. After this I can't really comment on what happens as I haven't done it yet!! Our exams so far have mainly been multiple choice so even if you have no idea, you can make a guess!

BVSc Veterinary Science

Veterinary Sciences at Bristol is definitely the course for me. The content is interesting and engaging but not impossible as first thought. The workload is manageable but hard. We have 2 lots of exams a year in January and Summer and have full timetable teaching thought the year including practicals and lectures. In the first 3 years we do pre clinical study- learning about the normal anatomy and physiology tided in with animal management and husbandry. In year 3 we start to look at clinical aspects including more disease, treatment and surgery which continues into year 4 and 5.

Course module review - Applied Probability 2, 10/03/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

Applied Probability 2
5.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
5.0 / 1 review

This module is a second year module that follows on from the first year probability module; if you are on the maths and statistics course yoy will be required to take this module. The content of this course is difficult but also very stimulating and if you work hard at it you will find the module very rewarding and interesting. It is a good starting point for study into higher probability. The module is theoretical rather than applied; it is mostly theorems proofs and using those theorems to prove others.

Modern Italy

4.0 / 1 review

I've really enjoyed studying about works of literature in Modern Italy - We've been studying some really interesting texts - the two which stood out for me were the play 'Accidental Death of an Anarchist' and the film 'Roma Citta' Aperta'. I feel like both my linguistic and analytical skills have improved during this unit and it's really captured my interest. The lessons have been really varied, and the teachers informed and enthusiastic.

Course module review - Science and Success: Writing, Speaking and Communicating Science, 26/05/2016

Science and Success: Writing, Speaking and Communicating Science
3.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
3.0 / 1 review

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.
