Why choose The University Of The West Of England?

Student satisfaction

The results showed us that 88% were overall satisfied with their experiences at UWE; this is above the national average. 87% were happy with the quality of our learning and teaching, and 95% felt that they had expert lecturers.

Quality assured
UWE has an excellent and well-deserved reputation for quality teaching reinforced by its teaching assessment record.
