|I didn't even do this but it's so true|
For a long time I was completely stuck between Bristol and King's College London and just couldn't decided which one I'd prefer to study at for four years of my life - as you'd expect from yours truly, a very detailed (and colour-coded) pros and cons table was drawn up. Eventually I decided on Bristol, and it may just have been the best decision of my life thus far. I LOVE BRISTOL!
Here's a fun fact for you: The University of Bristol was the first higher education institution in Britain to admit female and male students on an equal basis. Good work, Bris.
I imagine many a sixth form pupil have now got their university offers, and as I remember wanting to hear genuine students' views on their unis, I'm here to tell you just why I love being at Bristol so much. I haven't been asked to write this for the uni, nor is this the type of thing you'll find in the prospectus, it's just me: a second year student studying French and German, and absolutely loving it.

Also, both Ribena and the world's first chocolate bar were invented in Bristol. Pretty cool, eh?
I can't deny that the majority of Bristol students seem to come from London - most people consider me a Northerner, despite being from the Midlands *gasp* - but there really are people from all over. Although that's the case at most unis, I'm not sure every uni has the same type of student. Allow me to explain...

|We've got a lot of books. Not only on Germany, I promise.|
|This is a science building.|
|The Wills Building - I love walking past it on my way to work|
Oh, I feel I should also add that it rains a lot in Bristol, which kinda sucks. BUT everything else is AWESOME so it's fine.
