  • Wai: I have made lots of new friends and learnt a lot about the course it has been a very good experience. It's been a very interesting subject and working with other students. My accommodation has lots of Security and it's a new build. The restaurants and shopping in Bristol are great. The student union is very well organised. There is a good well-being service and health service here.
  • Reuel: It is great here at UWE and I can't wait to continue postgraduate here! Professional lecturers are top notch with their teaching skills which helps in making the course understandable. My accommodation is very resourceful and close to the cities. The facilities are good. Lowering the price of gym membership of the Sports Center and some of the sports societies would be good. The student union are very in touch with the student body.
