Good atmosphere and friendly people on the course. No complaints. A K
I really like Bristol, the people are really friendly and my course is really interesting. It’s taken a while to settle once I first started but then you get used to uni life pretty quickly. And then you love it! -Anonymous -

About this University
The University offers more than 200 degree courses made up of Single Honours degrees, which involve studying one main subject and Joint Honours degrees, which allow you to study two subjects alongside one another.
Social sciences and arts courses (apart from modern languages degrees) take three years to complete and lead to a Bachelors (BA, BSc or LLB) degree.
Most science, engineering and some medical sciences schools offer a choice of four-year Integrated Masters (MEng, MSci) or three-year Bachelors (BEng, BSc) courses. If you are in doubt about which course to choose, we recommend that you apply for the Masters course to secure four years of financial support, since funding bodies may refuse a subsequent extension of study.
Dentistry, Medicine and Veterinary Science usually take five years to complete.
Our courses have a modular structure, made up of mandatory and optional units, chosen from within your subject area. You may also be able to take one or more units in a different subject, enabling you to explore your interests in other areas of study.
Courses with Study in Industry
A number of our science, medical science and engineering courses include a year of industrial experience. The first two years of these courses are normally the same as the corresponding Honours degree courses. The third year is spent gaining valuable experience in industry, before resuming your course for your fourth and final year.
Courses with Study or Work Abroad
Many of our courses offer the opportunity to study or work in a different country, which enhances your personal development and career prospects. Look out for courses with 'Study in Continental Europe' or 'Study Abroad' in the title.
BSc with a Preliminary Year of Study
In Chemistry and Physics we offer courses with a preliminary year of study. These four-year courses are suitable for applicants who wish to study science, but also need to improve their level of attainment in the sciences. You need the equivalent of good GCSE passes in sciences and mathematics for entry onto these courses.
We support our students who want to enhance their medicine, dentistry or veterinary science degrees by intercalating, and we welcome students from other universities who are looking to intercalate at Bristol.
For more information and a list of available courses, please see our Intercalated degrees section.
