Hi there,

UWE Bristol is a midranking University made up of 3 campuses; Frenchay, Glenside and Bower Ashton. Take a look here at our virtual tour films to get a look at the campuses - https://virtualtour.uwe.ac.uk/guided-tours

It has a range of courses, all of which can be found here - https://www.uwe.ac.uk/courses/find-a-course/courses-a-z.

It is located in the UK city of Bristol, here is a website detailing things to do in Bristol and a little about the city itself- https://visitbristol.co.uk/

Do you have any more specific things you would like to know about UWE? I'd be happy to answer them

All the Best

Does the BSc (Hons) Architectural Technology and Design use CAD software for designs, and if so, is it used for each of the degrees?

Hi there,

If you visit the specific course page for BSc (Hons) Architectural Technology and Design you'll find lots of information about the course - courses.uwe.ac.uk/K236/architectural-technology-and-design

If you can't find the answer to you question on there, you can always get in touch with the programme leaders via their email addresses given on the course entry page linked above.

I hope this helps,

Tori.

hey, just piggybacking on this post.

i went to an open day on the Frenchay campus last summer, and i loved the course and faculty but the actual atmosphere just felt off, especially compared to other unis i had visited. im wondering whether this is was just because term was over so it was pretty empty, or whether it’s not right for me

any advice from students would be perf

im here now first year and it has its ups and downs. Personally i find its quite dead, i live in the city centre and it doesn’t have qualities that other unis have for example societies are awful and really dead, there are no uni formals or winter dances where everyone dresses up and eats, lectures are a lot smaller. Quality of work is still good and challenging, I just find for me i have less opportunities to really experience university life. I’m thinking of transferring to somewhere else next year as I really want the cool uni life that isn’t just parties and clubs. I wanna dress up I wanna do games nights and all of that but Uwe just doesn’t offer that

Hi jimmysmith8283

UWE Bristol does have lots of different societies available to join, see this webpage for more detailed information - https://www.uwe.ac.uk/life/activities.

I appreciate that the majority of societies are based at Frenchay Campus however there are lots of different ways to get to Frenchay, see here - https://www.uwe.ac.uk/about/services/travel-and-access

Is there a specific society you would be interested in joining?

Thanks

Martin
