There were different reasons I decided to do my studies in Bristol. First, this is in the top 100 universities in the world ranking in England. After, in Education field this is one of the best universities over the world. Then, the city is located in the southwest which means the weather is better than those universities located in the north. Finally, the flexibility of programme inspired to finally choose the Bristol University as my next school to do my master.
Bristol is a prestigious university ranked in the top 100 universities over the world with a very friendly staff and tutors which welcome you when you are initiating your studies helping you step by step to be familiar within the university atmosphere. I think the tutors of each pathway are recognisable in what they do since all of them are doctors who have demonstrated high quality in teaching by different publications and work they have done throughout their career.
The summer especially is one of the best times in Bristol as there are a lot of cultural activities to do which allow you to know more about the British culture and at the same time the opportunity to meet new people. I have been so comfortable with the safe life-style of daily living The respect shown amongst people for each other has been an incredible feature to let me feel comfortable and secure in this city.
I am definitely planning to continue on to do a PhD and am convinced that the knowledge I have gained during my time at Bristol will allow me to apply new changes to improve the field of education in Mexico in diverse aspects.
A UK undergraduate honours degree (or equivalent) and some appropriate professional experience, which could be voluntary or paid employment.
