Student life

Students fall in love with Bristol - a city small enough to remain friendly, but large enough to offer lots of interest and excitement. With our central location, outstanding facilities and active Students' Union, you can enjoy the best of student life.

London is quite comparable to Bristol: a big city with lots going on and different cultural backgrounds. But in Bristol you can walk everywhere and go to everything.
