Life and study in university of Bristol is good.
Tips: Bristol is an easy-going laidback fun city that makes you forget you're far from home. The course was created to help students from various backgrounds gain a solid understanding of Data Science. Therefore, if you want to study data Science or AI in greater depth there are better universities with better course descriptions, but if you want to transition from a different field to data Science this course will be useful.

Food options are not good. Job options are hard to find.
Tips: It would help if you searched about the job opportunities available in the country before joining the course. Because most students are facing difficulty in getting a decent job after graduation. Also, research about the accommodation options is beneficial, it is better to take university accommodation.
Likes (Part time work): The part-time job opportunities available at the university are very limited. However, it isn't that hard to find a part-time job outside the university. There are so many stores and restaurants that are there to employ students on a part-time basis.
Dislikes (Indian Food): Although there are a lot of Indian restaurants in the city, a good authentic one is missing. Especially for South Indians, there is hardly any option available. Having food outside is costly as well. We have to cook for yourself for most of the time.

Decent education with a hefty price
Tips: There is a cultural shift while moving to a new country as always. Things are done differently compared to back home. Trying to be part of their community help in getting accustomed to the people. No scholarships are provided. University is good overall. Course is good as well. You have the freedom to how deep you want to go in a particular module. Lecturers are smart however they lack lecturing skills. Lecturers who have native language English are good at it.
Likes (Part time work): Both on-campus and off-campus opportunities are good. If your proactive and committed in looking at jobs everywhere you will always find one. University has a lot of jobs on its portals on a daily basis and they pay well. You just need to keep looking till you find one. The basic salary is 10.42.
Dislikes (Permanent Immigration): Permanent settlement chances are limited. You have to be proactive and committed in this process or you won't be able to find one. Recently country policies have been against excessive immigration so thinking it will be easy here will be a bit delusional. Given a chance yes I will immigrate to this country.

I experienced best college life
Tips: Students coming here would have to balance work and studies. This is going to be the most socially active experience ever. There are plenty of scholarship opportunities as well, varying from region to region. The cultural understanding is fabulous there.
Likes (Internships): They're fully driven towards internships, from the very start of the academic year. They give us internships varying in different eras of management. Not only does it provide really good internships in HR but various other domains of management which as a whole improves overall knowledge.
Dislikes (Permanent Immigration): Since I myself would like to move back to India so haven't explored much about settlement options. But as far as I know, immigration process is good. UK provides various good options for settlement/immigration. So students can choose.

UoB is really great to study because of its faculty and their overall world ranking
Tips: They should definitely check if the city is safe to live in and how many part-time job opportunities it has. They should also see what is in the curriculum and study a bit before coming here if in case it is needed. Focus on getting an internship as it will help you in getting a job later. Students should feel confident before coming because the university has many things to offer that will help us in future.
Likes (Student Life): Student life is really amazing as the university arranges many events for students to get used to the environment and get comfortable. They arrange events in which you can get to know students from different countries and courses and it really helps us build connections.
Dislikes (Internships): It is very different for Masters students to get any internships as our course is only for 1 year. Students should focus on getting a part-time job first as it is comparatively very easy to get one. Getting an internship in the interested field is difficult in my opinion.
