University of the West of England

Through our partnership with UWE Bristol, you can choose to do foundation degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics through the University but be based here at the University Centre Somerset.

As a UWE Bristol student studying at the college, you will benefit from the University’s strong links with business and professions, as well as ours, and study a course that’s designed to prepare and equip you for going out into the workplace.

Your degree will be quality assured by the University, showing employers you have met their high academic standards. On completion of a foundation degree you may also have the opportunity to progress to a full honours degree at UWE Bristol.

UWE Bristol is a large and popular university, with a diverse student population studying a wide range of degrees locally, nationally and even internationally. Although you will be based at the College, you will be joining the UWE Bristol student body.

You will have access to all of UWE Bristol’s facilities, including their large library at the Frenchay Campus, extensive online library resources, social and learning spaces and sports centre. You will also have full access to the Students’ Union at UWE Bristol who offer a wide range of support in a new purpose-built building.
