In my first few days in Bristol, the first thing I found out about this city is the marvellous balance between convenience and leisure. It is always convenient to get to transportation and living necessities. But when you want to spend some time quietly, say, taking a refreshing walk, you can easily find nice places to relax and to enjoy the scenery along riverside. Actually, a walk along Avon River is my favorite pastime - it would be quite helpful for someone who got piles of assignments and readings on hand.
For someone looking for dramas, art films and plays, Bristol is definitely a city full of cultural charisma with easy accesses. There are a number of plays in Hippodrome and Bristol Old Vic, which is near to the university. All you need to do is the find some time to go there and enjoy the plays. And be sure to bring you student cards with you! In most cases, you can enjoy the nice performances with a good ticket price.
As to social life, in terms of the constitution of the students, this is quite an international university. Students in the university come from different countries and cultural backgrounds. It is wonderful to meet people from various parts of the world, which is also a new and interesting experience for an overseas student like me. There are also plenty of social events. For example, events held by numerous student societies or even the residential halls. And it is always interesting to meet new and friendly people. I myself have met several good friends on these occasions. Now, they are not only part of my social life, but also a crucial source of support when the study sometimes gets overwhelming.
In regard to academic learning, students are well supported by all the tutors: the teaching is well-structured, and all the tutors are sensitive to the potential difficulties and our concerns in learning. And the most important thing is that the course provides me with the necessary and latest knowledge in the field, which is very inspiring and helpful to my future career.
To sum up, I do think this is a marvellous city and university to live and to study in. The diverse aspect of the life here in Bristol is worth exploring—and I am also exploring it with enjoyment.
