It is true that Bristol university is full of private school/boarding school kids, but not to the extent of it's a reputation for this stereotype. I went to state school and I have met friends from all different backgrounds. I think exceeding expectations for me...is the social life- night life- there is a huge scale and something to please every type of person. The city is a beautiful, beautiful place and so diverse. Again, there is a whole scale of classes and types of people in different areas of Bristol. The architecture is amazing and yet not perfect like say, Bath. For students who come from London (as most do) Bristol is a smaller alternative but bigger than most cities. The River. There are lots of little cafe's around the university.×

League table rankings
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.
