Our students and alumni
Students of every nationality love studying on the International Foundation Programme. We help students progress to an undergraduate degree and succeed in their chosen career.
'The English students think I am so lucky to have had a foundation year. Everyone knows that students who have done the foundation are so good at writing.'
'It has helped me develop my English skills and become more independent. The staff are very friendly. So if I have problems, I just ask and they help me.'
'It teaches you everything you should’ve learned in high school but never learned. And everything you should know as an undergraduate but don't.'
'It’s a safe city. I have been to lots of other cities in the UK, but they aren’t as good as Bristol!'
'When I first came to the UK, my English level was really bad. Now, we can sit and talk like this.'
'I find Bristol vibrant, and it is a good city for students. It feels like a community, like a lot is going on.'
'Bristol is a great city, with its proximity to London and its atmosphere in general – vibrant, energetic and so young.'
'The University has really amazing resources. It has lots of relationships with big companies and organisations.'
'People are friendly and the city is really beautiful and green. I’m totally in love with this city. I have a lot of friends here.'
