The best experience is that location and building they got. They have good teacher as well. It could be improved if they work onwebsite and student portal to make it much easier for students to use. Because they offer 100 of options in website which is complicated. I have heard from many students that they are facing issue with the notification and updates . Some of them were not aware of referencing style, assignment submission deadline and grace period and the crateria of passing marks as well. They teaching system is best. But what it makes it complicated is the online things which one have to learn before he learns something on educational side.
The best part is you get to know more valuable things in law. The worst is that you are not allowed to write something totally on your own therefore you have to read articles and after that have to give references but to avoid plagarism. So its kind of hard game to balance between it. That not to go for plagarism totally and not on totally your mind. You have to be in middle all the time balancing.
University life is great! it can get stressful here and there but at the end i'm always glad that i'm here.
It’s very nice university in a perfect location, well organized and they care a lot about their students. Facilities are one of a kind.
The problem is I am really worried about my future career in the UK and I expected more support in terms of internship and placement.
The multi-cultural and diversity is what makes it an amazing place to study and meet new people. The student support provided is not only provided on department level but on a general university level which offers great support when in need. The services could be more modernized and equalized over the campuses and not just in one building.
The lecturers are extremely understanding and helpful, although specific modules could be re-organized to relate the course more to the module.
Not all computers have all the software
Lecturers always haply to talk and explain anything
It has such a cool environment to study there lots of places that you can seat and study no distrubance and anything, you can totally use facilities which university provide for us and they working very good. Beautiful environment outside which makes mind refreshing and help to reduce anxiety people at university are very helpful and kind. Nice building with best Architectural design, nice washrooms, cafes, fresh water, clean environment yes they are the best parts. I had problem about making new friends when I was arriving here. Just please have an eyes about international students when they are new.
Well my course is all about practical based there are a lots of practical works rather than theory need to do drawings and sketches so all of classes are running physically and it is so good because we can contact face to face with tutor and they are so kind and helpful and the timing is good. However for the morning sometimes I feel it is too early because we need to travel long.
Yeah it is all good because there is good accessible transport service but for me sometimes it is very hard to get bus because the problem is it takes 45 minutes when I decided to walk and it takes 1 hour when I will take the bus so I always used to walk Sometimes it is hard.
It is very peaceful and safe and affordable to go there
As a Sri Lankan student, I experienced many facilities in labs and libraries compared to my country. I 'm holding a Master of Information technology already, but I must accept I never got this much of hands-on practicals before. To be honest I felt I haven't learned much from my previous degrees until I learned from the UWE staff. I'm glad I chose UWE and I really love the diversification of the subject areas and hands-on practical-based learning. When it comes to assignments and exams I feel we don't have enough time to focus on them with the deadline as we have to research various topics in terms of success in the exams. This makes me feel exhausted, but I must accept it made me study lot more than my capacity.
With the pandemic, we were taught several lectures online. But in my opinion, a subject like computer science never can be taught online. It is a more practical-based study area and it needs face-to-face learning. But we were lucky because our academic staff always tried to follow up face-to-face lecturings and practical sessions whenever it is possible. Lecturers are available at possible times. Sometimes I feel it will be best if there are limited students in a practical session for better concentration and individual questionings
Bristol has named a green city in 2017. As it is named Bristol is a great city to live in and study in. The neighborhood is excellent and the people are generous too. But it is unbelievably expensive when it comes to accommodation. I found it very difficult to find a place to stay and had to stay in guest houses and hotels for a couple of days until I manage to find a reasonable place to live. The people take advantage and increase the cost of accommodation during the intake period.
I love the new facilities and the engineering block and the SU and how everyone is warm and welcoming as well as the range of activities and events. I also like the location and how we have a lot of restaurants and shops nearby but it is very inefficient to have to carry groceries to campus.
course hours are decent and tutors have a reasonable response time however some course content is messy and hours are some times not enough for harder courses and mosules
its on the quieter side of the town so that is pretty nice and there are a lot of essential shops near by
It's an amazing location, my campus is in the centre of the city and makes it really convenient for everyone to attend. We have really good and caring lecturers and tutors and there's loads of facilities in the other campuses when you need them. Whether that is a 24/7 library or digital making facilities. I think it would be nice to bring students in courses closer together by organising interesting study-related trips to galleries, shows, exhibitions, museums and although we have a once a year trip abroad not everyone might have the means to join so even if it is within the country I'd say it would be quite beneficial for the students and also lecturers to build better connections with us.
We do always get emails about jobs and internships we could apply for but I think a dedicated program would be less stressful for students. I think in level 3 having more group tutorials would be beneficial for feedback. I do appreciate 1 to 1s as well but knowing what fellow students are doing would be nice.
As an international student, I think the best aspects is the flexible tuition fee and wonderful campus, student support also great. The worst thing is the timetable, like I'm doing MSc I have to do class 3/4 days in week about 7-9 hours a day. Also getting varsity accommodation is very tough because it is always full.
Everything goes fine course content is also helpful but it's very hard to listen to a lecture for 3 hours. It is very tough catch everything from a single lectures.
No doubt the place is great and beautiful. Also, public transportation is up to the mark. But the living cost is very high in Bristol. And for regular classes, it's quite impossible to get a part-time job.
