Student Profile

Maria Bravo

I chose the University of Bristol because it had the Masters program that I was looking for. In addition, when I started searching for universities I realized the high quality of the University since it was among the best in the world. Moreover, I noticed the staff were high quality researchers who account papers and publish books.

The University of Bristol is an excellent institution which has a most remarkable feature its quality of education. What I like most about university is its ability to develop critical thinking in students. In this regard, I feel that I have learnt more than previous universities experiences because Bristol has such methodology that promotes students to think critically about what are they receiving as theoretical information so we can go forward, question knowledge and compare evidence. As a result, students are not passive, rather they have an active role during lessons, giving their opinions, developing ideas, discussing among peers and teachers, for instance. All these factors help students to achieve significant learning.

Teachers are respected academics and they are involved in current scientific discussions. Also, teachers support students academically and are available for answering student's requirements. Communication between teacher-student is based on a respectful relationship and there is emotional support for students who need it during their studies. In general the staff are very friendly and always willing to help students.

The city of Bristol has a familiar environment, people are friendly and they are always willing to help. There is a good transport system with plenty of buses to get different places. The city has a nice center, with shops, restaurants, etc. Furthermore, Bristol is a very safe city, you can walk without any problem at night.

After completing my studies, I will return to my country to work in public schools and the university in my city since I have a scholarship, from the Chilean government. I would like to develop an academic unit based on the relationship between neuroscience and education since the University of Bristol has changed my thoughts about neuroscience and education in terms of how both sciences are related each other. Neuroscience in education is much more than teachers learning about the brain.
