Undergraduate student experiences
"When researching and deciding upon a university, I knew I wanted somewhere which offered an academically stimulating course, whilst also being in a city which I would enjoy living in. For me, Bristol University offered both of those, as well as offering great career opportunities."
"Studying law at the University of Bristol was challenging, but one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had. The University pushes its students to do their best and to help them to further their futures both in law and non-law careers. I attribute a lot of my employability skills to the opportunities that the University has provided me, and I am forever grateful. My advice to prospective students would be to start developing your passions before you come to University. Not only will this help in an application, but it would also allow you to start participating in the many societies, modules, and activities that the University offers."

I was given the chance to interact with individuals from various backgrounds, with beliefs and viewpoints different from my own. Being part of a multicultural environment enhanced my personal development and academic performance."
"Beyond the teaching that we have received in formal contact hours, one thing that has struck me as most inspiring has been the readiness of tutors to dispense fantastic advice both with regards to their subject and potential careers paths.

"My experience at Bristol has helped me prepare for the workplace in a number of ways. The independence that Bristol has given me academically, reinforced a level of self-motivation and drive, in addition to taking responsibility for my own success and also enjoyment within my work and social life.

"After looking at a range of universities across the country, Bristol stood out to me. The Law School is also renowned for its quality education and highly-regarded current and emeritus legal academics. I knew that if I wanted an excellent legal education to boost my career, taking up my offer from Bristol would be the best first step in pursuing my goals."
