Student experiences

What is it like to study at UWE Bristol? Exchange students share their experiences:

David Scuderi, Politecnico di Milano, Italy

Studied: Urban Planning

"My experience at UWE Bristol was one of the most life-changing experiences of my life. I have completely changed. I arrived frightened and without anyone I count count on. In a few months, thanks to the availability of professors, staff and my new colleagues of all nationalities, I found myself in a comfortable, amazing and respectful environment.

The teaching experience was completely different from the Italian one. I was able to compare myself with new methods and approaches and I feel I have learned so much.

"Leaving all the wonderful people I met was hard. But now I can go around the world and find a friend ready to meet me at the airport."

Snizhana Makushynska, Collegium Civitas, Poland

Studied: Politics and International Relations

"From an academic perspective, UWE Bristol is one of the best universities I had a chance to study at. I had a great experience and the campus environment is really friendly. I enjoyed my courses and the teaching style - I'm very thankful to the lecturers and support staff who helped me during my time at the University.

In addition to my studies, I was also involved with various student societies and made so many friends, I really recommend that to other students as well."
