UWE Bristol is based across three campuses in the city of Bristol. An exciting and diverse city, with a large student population, it is an exciting place to live and to study. It was judged the number one place to live in the UK by the Sunday Times in the Best Places to Live 2017. Bristol is also a centre of industry with opportunities for networking and graduate employment on its doorstep.
UWE Bristol has an excellent reputation which has grown in recent years. It was ranked 37th of all UK universities in the Guardian League Table in 2019, which is up 15 places on the previous year. This continuous improvement also applies to the campuses, with over GBP 300 million being invested in facilities onsite up to 2020.
UWE Bristol was awarded a gold rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework, the highest standard available, and the teaching across its over 600 courses is highly rated. This contributed to the 89 per cent student satisfaction level it achieved (National Student Survey 2018).
UWE, Bristol offers two-year master’s courses in both Information Technology and International Management, which have the option of a placement. This will appeal to students who wish to enhance their career opportunities by applying their knowledge in practice and enhancing their skills for employability. Please note that while the university supports students to do this, they can’t guarantee the availability of placements.
It has an excellent reputation amongst employers, with 96 per cent of students in work or further study within six months of graduating, and 76 per cent in professional or managerial positions (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey 2018).
Its strong campus community is home to over 140 clubs and societies, centred at the new Student Union building, the heart of campus life. International Students are made to feel at home with programmes to help them settle in, including orientation, day trips and events throughout the year.
