The University of Bristol is located in the heart of the city, and although it is not a university campus, most of its buildings are only a short walk from each other. The modern facilities of the city are linked by a large public transport network. Bristol International Airport is within easy reach of the city, and London is only 90 minutes away by train. Bristol has been named the best place to live in the UK (Sunday Times 2017) and there’s a lot to do in a busy city with over 400,000 people. It is the region’s leading center for business, culture and education, and many students enjoy a fantastic standard of living. Access to Wales, the Cotswolds and the popular holiday destinations of the south-west coast is also easy.
