“We sometimes get in visiting lecturers talking about their cutting-edge research and I can sit there in the lecture room and think ‘I was taught that on Monday’. That’s really why I enjoy being taught at Bristol”

Jason Shaw, Electrical and Electronic Engineering (MEng), Year 4.

“What’s fantastic at Bristol is that if you’ve ever got a problem you can just ask or email your lecturers and say ‘look I’m struggling, can you help me?’ and they are more than happy to give you time”
