7.4 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"The community of lecturers and professors and the interesting exploration in research they are doing at the moment. Also, how approachable and inclusive some of the lecturers are, especially in seminars. The societies and extra curricular activities are wonderful, and the location of buildings and the city centre make things very convenient. I feel like this is a perfect city for students, and a great cultural hotspot for arts and literature at the moment."
