The Best of Bristol Lectures

Dr Matthew Avison


profile picture
Subject Area:

Amazing personality ! He is literally a L-E-G-E-N-D among students, first of all because he is a lovely personality and secondly because of his lectures.
His lectures are really entertaining, with really cool jokes which make students feel more comfortable and enjoy learning but most importantly he manages to explain complex ideas/theories/ techniques with astonishing clarity and creativity.
Finally the student community has a huge respect for Dr. Avison because he hasn't forgotten how it is to be a student; a feature that maybe is missing in other lecturers! Would recommend to present his lecture on '' How to read scientific literature'' or whatever he wants !!

It's not just his sense of humor or entertaining lectures, but his whole attitude to students and teaching in general. He does his best to make you understand what is the real value of any kind of knowledge, why is it important to have it and why you don't have to know everything. And most importantly, he's just a human being like all of us..not pretending to be an "authority" or trying to be as distant from his students as possible... by Velislava - 22/10/2011 - 23:19

Fruni is about giving as many people as possible the opportunity to experience the most inspiring teaching at UK universities, as voted for by students.

First we give students the chance to experience the best teaching their university has to offer, regardless of the subject they study.

Then we work with universities to put these brilliant teachers at the heart of their outreach programmes. We aim to create a publicly free national resource of outstanding university teaching.
