The main campus Frenchay is located in a peaceful part of Bristol. The majority of our courses are taught there including: Architecture, Biosciences, Business, Education, Law plus more. Many state-of-the-art buildings and facilities have been built and updated over the years, for instance, our new Engineering Building which became fully functional in February 2021.

Bristol is the heart of creative industries. All our creative art courses are conducted at our City Campus in the city centre, surrounded by major companies like Aardman and BBC.

Recently ranked top 120 world young university ranking (Times Higher Education), and having been voted the best place to live in the UK twice by Sunday Times, UWE Bristol is a fantastic place to study and live.
