University of Bristol
6.8 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 35 ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"I much preferred the idea of a city university such as Bristol. Being secluded in a student bubble in a campus university would have felt so isolating and detached from the real world. In Bristol, you get the vibrant feel of a student lifestyle while being heavily planted in the real world. This allows you to relax and have a good time while preparing you for what's to come when you graduate."
