As a history student be prepared to do a large amount of independent work. There are very few contact hours and so very little teaching. You can seek guidance and advice as the department provides a lot of opportunity to see specific tutors on a one to one basis which is advantageous. The majority of the work is essay based however there are a number of presentations to do during seminars. Facilities are quite poor. The library is always full - the 5 computers in the common room dont work and there are few copies of the core texts required×

The city of Bristol is a great city to be a student in, as it caters to all tastes and is small-scale enough to be easily traversable. The university's academics are very approachable and happy to give you feedback. The facilities of the university are very good as well, in terms of sport and theatre.×
Clubs are the same as anywhere. Bristol, especially the Student Union gets very good bands to perform.Report

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.
