Open days at the University of Bristol

Open days at the University of Bristol

OK so this is a video to show you what an
open day at Bristol University’s like. We’re going to go all around the
campus, go to some accommodation. We’ll be talking to lots of
people along the way and I’ll just be showing you everything
that Bristol has to offer. I couldn’t recommend it more to anyone. It’s
fantastic. I’ve had a great four years here. Up here we’ve got our radio telescope used by undergraduate students
for their project work so they get to get their hands on
a real research-grade instrument. Here in physics we’re right
in the centre of it, north of us are mainly the arts and
languages, and social sciences south of us are the science
and engineering faculties but you can get around it. You can walk to any of those places
in five or ten minutes from here. Employers really do value
degrees from Bristol. The Careers Service are
absolutely fantastic here. Any questions you have, they are
more than willing to help you. A lot of subjects do have
links with industry. Engineering’s particularly
good, as are the sciences they’re involved with various
projects across the country and various industries. Bristol’s website is good but seeing
it in real life’s a lot better. The talks are really informative. Yeah the
psychology talk was good Life in Bristol, that was really good
and what you needed to get into Planning your career was
helpful, that was good as well. So we know that open
day’s a busy day so we’ve got loads of
food available for you. Over here we’ve got a barbecue,
there’s a cafe over there. I think it’s been a fascinating day, I’ve
loved all the lectures I’ve been to. I’ve seen engineering, it’s a
fascinating department. I think it’s really welcoming, you know it’s
when you don’t know a city which I don’t know Bristol at
all, it’s easy to get around and I think you, you’re mind gets really
opened to opportunities here, so… Sports facilities at Bristol are amazing they cater to people that want to do outdoor
sports, or do gym-based work or swimming, the facilities are there. I think coming gives you a bit more
of an idea what the atmosphere’s like and the students seem
really enthusiastic. The Wills Memorial Building houses the law
department and the earth sciences department. Also the Great Hall’s in here
where the graduation happens. Not sure if I can recommend one thing
because there’s so much to see but I’d definitely say ask a lot of
questions because the people here know a lot. This is our first look and so good so far. We’ve got five halls of residence open. A mixture of catered and self-catered. So Bristol’s got loads of landmarks.
Obviously the Suspension Bridge behind me, Wills Memorial Building, which is part
of the University, it’s rich in history, it’s also got loads of
modern stuff as well. I say Bristol’s an absolutely fantastic
city to live in. I’m just about to graduate and I want to
stay here now for as long as I possibly can.
