I just loved the city instantly, and even though I'd looked at a few other universities afterwards, Bristol was the one that stuck with me. I was chuffed to bits when I got in.
BSc Economics and Politics
My favourite aspect of the course was definitely the Politics seminars. These always yielded lively and engaging discussions, and the tutors encouraged students to formulate their own opinions.

Sociology led me to understand the differences that exist in society, and it made me want to explore and explain these differences to help improve people’s experiences.
Bristol taught me how to debate effectively and also the importance of listening, skills I now use on a daily basis.
I was taught to think critically which is so useful for my work, and networking with academics is also really important for publishing. While I was at Bristol I learned how to network, too.
Having graduated from Bristol was an undoubted advantage at every stage of the further study I did and the applications I made. A university of Bristol degree had and has real currency all the way through.
