There is just something unique to Bristol that makes you want to study here. I first became exposed to the University of Bristol during a study abroad year when I was an undergraduate student in the USA. That year made such an impression on me that I returned as a postgraduate student.
I came to Bristol to study for a Masters in Economics because Bristol offers a truly exceptional student environment. Bristol is a world class academic university with a faculty to match the reputation. The personal tutor system at Bristol allows students to interact with professors on an almost equal level. The professors encourage insightful questions, debate, and arguments, so they can help you deepen your knowledge. Students are expected to perform on a high level, but the faculties ensure an access to all possible resources for students to succeed.
The most interesting part of the University are the students that fill the classrooms. I have never meet a student body so informed about world affairs, economics, philosophy, science, or culture. It is refreshing to be at a university where the students actually aspire to that old notion to learn for the sake of learning. After a day of lectures and reading it is not all that uncommon to see students have a pint or tea together and intensely discussing a topic unrelated to their field of study.
The city itself helps foster such a student environment with countless student cafes and pubs. Bristol, as often said, is a miniature London. It is not so large that you become suffocated by an urban jungle, but it is large enough to give you a European metropolitan feel. Students will often find themselves on small streets, surrounded by shops in well preserved Georgian buildings. The city is also surrounded by the breath taking historical south-west countryside, which gives you the welcome break if you grow tired in the city.
For any student contemplating studying in the UK, you should come to Bristol. The students and residents of the city are friendly and will instantly make you feel comfortable. The diversity within the student and locals creates a truly accepting international community. Bristol has allowed me to show my culture to others, and at the same time to learn about all the other ones that find their way here.
