Preparing for academic life

Academic life at UWE Bristol

We want you to feel at home from day one, but you may find that academic life at UWE Bristol is quite different to your previous educational experience.

The way you are taught and interact with your teachers and fellow students may come as a bit of a surprise to you – you will not be alone in this.

During your studies, you will experience a variety of teaching and assessment methods. You will also find that your programme is designed to improve your knowledge of key subject areas, as well as develop your skills in:

  • Research.
  • Independent study.
  • Critical thinking.
  • Forming your own opinions (supported by your reading and study).

As you prepare to begin your studies, we recommend that you take some time to read our 'preparing for study information' which contains online tutorials and advice to help you prepare for academic study at UWE Bristol.
