What their Students Say

“I always dreamed of being a Barrister and studying the LLB here at UWE Bristol has given me the tools I need to achieve this.

Studying Law has been a huge learning curve for me; my course wasn’t easy and has really challenged me mentally. I now understand why Law is so highly regarded and I now have a greater appreciation for it.

As I’ve progressed through my course, I have gained many news skills, such as analytical and critical thinking from an academic standpoint.

My attention to detail has also improved and I have a much deeper understanding of the subject matter. My lecturers were very good at providing feedback and clear guidance which led to an improvement in my assessments.

Study abroad is not just about academic but also ensuring a positive balance with a social life. I joined the UWE Muay Thai Club.

Muay Thai is a martial art that I compete in and has really added value to not only my experience but also my life. Through the club I’ve represented UWE and have made some of my closest friends.

Overall, studying at UWE Bristol has really helped me to build my confidence.”

LLB Law, Zambia

“When I arrived, I quickly discovered that Bristol is an extremely friendly, creative and lovely place to live. It has lots of parks to spend time in and there are frequent art events held throughout the city. I could never get bored of it.

Similar to the city itself, UWE Bristol’s facilities are highly supportive of artists. There’s plenty of space to work on whatever you desire, from animating to editing to sound recording and more. The library has thousands of art books and magazines from different countries and time periods to look through, providing ample resources for research, inspiration and enjoyment.

One thing I appreciated about the course was how much freedom I had to choose the direction of my work. I dabbled in a wide range of animation techniques that I was exposed to in my workshops and lectures, and I learned things that I had previously not even considered.

Since graduating from UWE Bristol, I’ve found an abundance of work in the UK. I worked on a three-month freelance project, commissioned by the BBC, to promote an understanding of the Lunar New Year to children.”
