Check out international learning awards and eligibility.

Information for US students

If you are a student from the United States, please check the US Department of Education Lookup Tool to ensure that any partner institution you wish to attend on Exchange is Title IV ‘eligible’ forFederal Student Aid for the year in which you intend to study there. For institutions outside of the US, select “Foreign Country” from the “State” dropdown menu.

If you attend an eligible institution, then you may receive Title IV federal student loans while on Exchange.

If you attend an ineligible institution:

  • You will not be eligible for US federal student loans,
  • You may invalidate any US student aid you have previously received for your studies at UBC,
  • You may be required to immediately begin repaying your US student loans, and
  • You may not be eligible for any future US student aid for the remainder of your studies at UBC.
Housing

Types of accommodation available

Off-campusOn-campus

Housing notes

October entrants to Bristol are guaranteed University housing for their time in Bristol, and January entrants, although not formally guaranteed University housing, almost always get in.

The accommodation ranges from self-catered student houses in Clifton (near the University) to large catered halls of residence in Stoke Bishop (35 minutes walk across open parkland). Between these two lie a whole range of housing situations, each of which has its own merits.

You will be asked to choose between two main categories of accommodation - catered or self-catered.

Past experience suggests that the catering plans on offer are rather more restrictive in both portion and menu than you may be used to, and not suitable for people who have any sort of dietary restrictions. Self-catering is very easy, and a popular choice for international students. Nonetheless, catered halls represent reasonable value for money and a good alternative for those who do not enjoy cooking. They also tend to be very sociable places as most Bristol first year students gather there, and if you fancy a break from cooking the University refectory offers meals at reasonable prices.

Your application for accommodation will be sent to you when you have been offered a place and given confirmation of your acceptance, and you should submit your form as soon as possible. The halls of residence will inform you directly when they are offering you a place and will send you the appropriate information.

Once you have been assigned accommodation, if you have any queries please contact the hall directly. Queries regarding Student Houses should be directed to the University Accommodation Office, email accom-office@bris.ac.uk.

All students in University accommodation are billed in the first two weeks of each term.
