University of Bristol

About the institution

Bristol was named the UK’s best city to live in by The Times and, among many things, is famous for being home to Banksy, Aardman (Wallace and Gromit) and the Clifton Suspension Bridge. The University of Bristol’s campus is near to the city centre and its main teaching facilities are within easy walking distance from one another. The majority of first year student residences are in Stoke Bishop. It’s a short bus ride from the campus and overlooks the Downs, a popular area for runners and summer barbecues.
