Bristol was voted “Best Place to live in Britain 2017” and it is the ideal place to live and study, with its rich history, vibrant culture and nearby countryside and coast. It is also a top retail destination, with a great selection of independent shops, cafes, and restaurants.

Bristol is ideally located just 90 minutes by train to London and 15 minutes to Bath. The city has an international airport which provides routes to most major European destinations.

 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
