Introduction to the UWE Bristol Charter

Principles and shared expectations

At UWE Bristol we strive to ensure all our students experience outstanding teaching, learning and support services throughout their university life so that when they graduate they are ready and able to realise their full potential, and make a positive contribution to society and their chosen field of employment. In short, we want you to succeed and achieve great things. We believe that this is best achieved by working together in a spirit of interdependence, trust and respect.

The UWE Bristol Charter was created in a spirit of partnership between the University and The Students’ Union at UWE. It sets out the principles on which our learning community at UWE Bristol is founded and the shared expectations and commitments that foster a positive experience for all students: undergraduate and postgraduate, taught and research.
