UK universities are among the best in the world, and

that your degree will help you stand out from the crowd.

Explore the UK and Europe
Let’s be honest the UK is a great study location and Bristol is
perfectly positioned for you to explore the rest of the UK – and
Europe too. Hop on the train and arrive in Bath in just 15 minutes
or London in just 90 minutes.
And with Europe right on your doorstop, jetting off to Paris, Amsterdam, Venice or Rome for the weekend really doesn’t have to be just a dream. It’s yours to discover.
Immerse yourself in a multicultural society
One of the great aspects of studying in the UK is its
multiculturalism and nowhere is this more visible than across our
universities. Bristol is home to many cultures, faiths, languages
and communities – and this is reflected on our campuses too.
You can join one of our many clubs, societies and networks to find likeminded friends who share your interests.
Graduate in less time
The great news is that UK courses are generally shorter than in
many other countries but no less respected, so you get a valuable
degree in even less time than it might take at home.
So by studying in the UK, not only do you open up your world to an international study experience, but you’re likely get to where you want to be even more quickly than at home. And let’s not forget that this means you’re likely to save on tuition fees and living costs too.
And while you’re studying here, you’ll also have the chance to work for up to 20 hours per week on your student visa. Some UK work experience will look impressive on your resume as employers value graduates with international work and study experience.
