Program Overview

Program Description:

Choosing to study and live in Bristol for a summer will prompt so many questions. Do you spend the weekend in town for the music festival, hop a train into London, or cruise over to Wales? While choosing one amazing activity over another may present a challenge, you’ll find it easy to make Bristol your home for a memorable summer. With its own airport, Bristol is an easy hub to other European cities. Not that you need to travel for new experiences: summer students enjoy embedded field trips two evenings a week, like a street art walking tour or private ferryboat around Bristol Harbour.

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.
