"There is incredible support at UWE Bristol. I was very impressed with how different the learning environment was. Classes were so interactive, very hands-on, taught in small groups and a great mix of different cultures."

UWE Bristol accommodation for international students consists of single study bedrooms. Couples and families who wish to live together can apply for private accommodation.
You can also watch our private accommodation webinar for more information.
If you would like some help searching for private accommodation, please complete this short form. It is important that you find accommodation before arriving in the UK, as the University cannot offer you a room whilst you search. So please arrange temporary accommodation if needed (such as to stay in an Airbnb or hotel).
