BA(Hons) English and History gives you a deep understanding of the relationship between historical contexts and literature.

It's just like Skins… Seriously though, Bristol's got so much on, there's loads of street art, all the independent shops are so cool, and you can cycle everywhere. Everyone is so chilled out and lovely! The first year accommodation was also amazing, so lively and close to campus. Pro-tip = The Frenchay Farmer’s Market is great to pick up cheap fruit and veg. The uni also gave the opportunity to study a year abroad in Grenada, which was seriously the highlight of my degree. And Darth Vader went to school here!

    The university is good, but not outstanding. I have heard from friends that UWE excels in some areas if study (business school for example) but studying an arts degree can have a taught experience that is less satisfying. That being said I do think that the university does leave you well versed in your subject of choice as learning and well prepared for a future career if you use the extensive tools provided for you.
