I regularly feel like I fit in due to the city's vibrant and friendly nature. I am confident I made the right decision. Who else offers a chance to ride the hot air balloon almost every weekend? I would not want to be anywhere else.
More talented international students will be able to realise their dream of studying at a prestigious UK institution thanks to the generosity of Bristol alumni who have contributed £100k to the University’s scholarship fund, Think Big.
I chose University of Bristol when I applied for the Chevening Scholarship because of its reputation. Since UoB is one of the top universities in the UK (and in the world), I am proud to study here. I believe that all the knowledge and experience I'll acquire during my studies will enhance my future career.
My personal tutor, Dr Paul Youdell was exceptional. His unwavering support and understanding made it possible for me to achieve a distinction in my programme. Also, I enjoyed connecting and sharing cultural experiences with my fellow classmates from countries such as China, South Korea, Brazil, Norway, Egypt, and many others.
I chose the University of Bristol because it has a very prestigious programme of Public Policy. Also, the UoB is part of the Russell Group. This demonstrates that the UoB has a high interest in research, which so far has sharpened my research skills.
Cellular and Molecular Medicine is a brilliant programme for anyone with a passion for biomedical science and research. I mostly love it because the syllabus is giving me the opportunity to learn about the very nature of cells and organisms.
The programme was very interesting as it gave me an oversight of the vet profession. On one hand side, we had the opportunity to observe vets working in both large and small animal hospitals, to visit farms and stables so as to get the experience of working with farm animals, as well as visit the abattoir where we experienced the less pretty side of the profession.
Coming from a metropolitan city without any large farms, I wanted to have the opportunity to work with farm animals and gain practical skills. I also wanted to get a feel for what the University of Bristol is like, and to see the Langford campus.
I really liked how we were given very varied experiences, from milking cows to visiting the abattoir.
