7.4 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"The city itself is in a great location and the main campus is only five mins walk from the centre. There needs to be a lot more library space and electrical sockets in study areas. Student accommodation is good but could do with some updating and it can be quite a long way from the main campus."
