As Bristol University is a precinct, it is fairly easy to have a wander and find something cheap to eat. Most of the uni's places to eat are expensive, being run by private companies, but there are supermarkets and cheap pubs an easy walk away. As walking or cycling is the main form of transport, transport costs should be quite low, except for a few potential costs - bike theft is very common, so get a decent lock and also insurance if your bike is expensive. If you have a car, residential parking schemes are in place in the central area, Kingsdown and Cotham, with many more to be rolled out in 2014. These are reasonably priced, but are something to be aware of. Travelling locally by bus is expensive - the main bus company recently had a fare review, but I don't yet know the results of this - though the student/tourist bus route of the 8/9 is much cheaper. Local trains are cheap and a good way to get to Temple Meads. Being a city, there are many opportunities for part-time work, within the hours recommended by the uni. If you are under 21 and get a retail job in a major chain, I would also be surprised if you weren't paid above minimum wage - both the jobs I had paid well. One thing to be aware of is the limited range of supermarkets available by foot from studenty areas - Sainsbury's or Sainsbury's. If you're lucky, you may live near a Tesco, or even the 24 hour ASDA, but if not, you will end up paying more for your weekly food shop.×

Labs are often pretty repetitive, and can be too rushed to really take in what I'm doing. The preparation for them and feedback isn't great, especially for pharmacology.×

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
We’ve pinpointed the key sites where teaching takes place. Check in the smallprint of the course you’re interested in to see where exactly you’d be based, especially if there are multiple locations spread across a wide area.
