Education
BSc (ENG) in Civil Engineering

Formerly Kensington College, Bristol University in Anaheim, California, educates future business professionals and provides advanced degrees for those already in the field. Some of Bristol's most outstanding features are its highly qualified faculty and its internship program. Bristol awards associate's, bachelor's and master's degrees in Business Administration. They also offer diplomas in Hospitality Operations and Legal Studies. Classes generally have 20 or fewer students, so that each student may get as much instructor attention as possible. This is particularly beneficial since many of Bristol University's faculty have graduated from such prestigious universities as Georgetown, Harvard, Penn State and Stanford. Students in the Legal Studies program also have the option of participating in a professional internship at a local law firm. Interns generally work one or two days a week, for the last half of their program. They also gain experience that could lead to full-time employment. Admissions requirements for each program are different. Those applying for a diploma, associate's or bachelor's must have a high school diploma or GED. MBA applicants will need to have a bachelor's and a GPA of at least 2.0. All applicants must also interview with an admissions counselor. Applicants may discuss additional requirements with a Bristol University counselor or advisor. Bristol University offers scholarships that cover up to half of tuition. They also participate in Title IV financial aid programs, like loans, Pell grants and other types of federal funding. The application for federal, financial aid, called the FAFSA, is required to receive federal aid.
