Start your experience

Explore your chosen subject area and join our live chats with current students and staff.


Be part of a community where everything is set up to help you feel supported and empowered. From help with your studies and looking ahead to your future career, to looking after your wellbeing and the extra support available. We want you to be the best you can be. 


Be the best you can be

How you think determines how you feel and what you can achieve. That’s why it’s important that you feel good about yourself. But this isn’t always easy – we all have good and bad days. At UWE Bristol, we provide the tools you need to be confident, happy and successful in life. Take a minute to watch staff from across our university explaining how we can support you. 

Our Careers team

Our Careers team are here to help you discover what your future looks like.  With practical career advice and mentoring, CV writing workshops and all the tools you’ll need along the way. Hear more from the team themselves.

Library study support

There are a number of ways you can get support with your studies through our 24/7 library. We have helpdesks, an online chat service, as well as 1:1 sessions and workshops on offer. You can also get involved with our student-to-student support scheme where more experienced students help those who are new to the university.  Find out more about what the library can offer you. 

Disability services

Once we know the barriers you may face at university we can address these together so you have the best possible experience. Hear from our team about disclosing your disability, applying for allowances and the support you can expect.  

UWE Cares

UWE Cares provides support to:

  • students who are leaving care
  • students who are permanently estranged (or separated) from their parents
