Not long at all, there's a bus called the U4 which went straight from the city centre down the motorway so no extra stops or anything, you'd be there in 10-15mins. They left every half hour so you'd just get the one half hour before your lecture
Otherwise the U3 was ok, but never the U1 or U2, they went such a long way round!
Yeah, I'll have a good look round on the Open Day
How long did it take to get from the City Center to Frenchay?
I was on Frenchay. I moved up there with 2 of my best friends and for us it was more the thought of everytime we wanted something or a proper night out you'd have to travel into town and back again. I was only in uni twice a week most of the time so it was much better to live in the centre, lots more benefits.
It's whatever suits you though. Frenchay halls are nice anyway, and you'll only be able to live there for a year so after that I'd definitely recommend the Rackhay. Have a look at it on the Unite website, it's really nice accommodation, never thought I'd be a student and living in such a good location, with a double bed and really nice decoration!
What campus were you based on? I'll be based on Frenchay I think, for that reason I think I'll get accommodation on campus because I can't be bothered travelling from the cite center to the campus for lectures. Lazy I know
Accommodation wise I lived in Unite halls in the city centre for all three years. Lived in Cherry Court Yr1 and The Rackhay for years 2-3. Loved the Rackhay, would definitely recommend. Great location. Wouldn't really want to live in UWE halls on campus coz it's so out of the way, much better to be in the city!
Nightlife was great, plenty of clubs and bars to go to, lots of student deals. There were even student nights on Saturdays in some places, loved nights out in Bristol.
Some parts are rough, but so long as you're basically just on campus or in the town centre you'll be fine. Places such as Easton weren't great at all and near where Cherry Court is, leads onto St Pauls which I'd definitely tell you to avoid!
I liked the uni, I did education so we had a nice new block but the rest of it was fine too. Timetable was never too full on for any of us or anything. I'd definitely recommend the uni
So questions on UWE...
1. Whats the accommodation like?
2. What's the nightlife like?
3. What's the city like? Rough or okay?
4. What's the uni itself like?
I do intent to go to an Open day some time next year
Thank youuuuuu x
