University of the West of England

The University of the West of England (also known as UWE Bristol, or simply UWE) is a university located near the city of Bristol, United Kingdom. The university can trace its roots back to the foundation of the Merchant Venturers Navigation School in 1595, to which the Universities of Bristol and Bath also partly owe their origins.

UWE has consistently been ranked among the top ten new universities in the UK and has always scored ‘excellent’ in the teaching assessments carried out by the Quality Assurance Agency. The university is also rated the fourth best university in the UK for Law according to the UK Law Society. The volume of world-leading research at UWE Bristol has gone up by 170%, with the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 results revealing that 57% of the research submitted by UWE was judged to be either world leading or internationally excellent. The results highlight UWE’s particular strengths in the areas of allied health and nursing, and communications, cultural and media studies. Results were also outstanding in areas such as architecture, built environment and planning; engineering, including the Bristol Robotics Laboratory, the largest robotics lab in Europe; art and design; computer science; and business and management.
