Program Overview

Program Description:

When you choose CIS Abroad’s Semester in Bristol program, know you’re choosing the best of both academics and location. Bristol is the “greenest” city in the UK and a great launching pad for students looking for a more affordable alternative to London (just 90 minutes away). The University of Bristol, ranked among the UK’s Top 10 universities and among the Top 50 in the world, is a great match for independent, academically committed students who are excited to get out and explore.

Setting Description:
Bristol is a great size – at 450,000 residents, it’s big enough to have something new to explore every weekend, but you’ll still get to know the city. Located 90 minutes west of London, Bristol has a lot of surprises in store – including being 30% more affordable than its neighbor (hello, weekend travel!). With a vibrant mix of heritage buildings and modern street art, Bristol’s creative industries like media, film, and TV thrive alongside technology, electronics, and aerospace engineering sectors. Bristol is the greenest city in the UK, both in its commitment to sustainability and its lush natural spaces (450 parks!). Explore Bristol’s botanical gardens, river, and harbor or venture to nearby nature reserves well-known for hiking and recreation. Whether you’re into music, movies, museums, or theatre, Bristol doesn’t stop with options for entertainment and adventure. And it’s easy to get around – Bristol’s walkability includes free citywide buses.
