Cons

What are the worst things about studying at your university?

2018

"The admin can be very unorganised and quite incompetent when it comes to planning ahead."
"There isn't a huge range of clubs and societies to join compared to other universities."
"Transport is expensive and rush hour makes travel very strenuous."
"There's some unpredictability regarding cancellations and the jobs centre provides generic advice."
"The library is too small."
"The students' union could be better. While facilities have improved, they're still sub-par compared to other unis I've seen."
"Most events are in the evening so students living away from the uni may be excluded."
"The students' union is quite laidback so it does not host as many events as it could."
"I'm used to a university that has electrical outlets at almost every seat and table, which is incredibly useful but that seems lacking at City. The cafeteria could also do with an expansion."

2016

"It's not the best university for a social life. Societies aren't to a high standard and there's little student community feel."
"Hallways and common areas are too small. Seminar leaders are not always the best."
"The campus isn't large like some other unis so it doesn't have as much as it might."
"Not a great social life as there aren't many societies for the university. The societies at Cass Business School are very advanced and more aimed at postgraduate students."
"The canteen is too expensive."
"There could be more library resources and I've experienced some inconsistency in my feedback."
"Timetabling can be a problem. It comes out late every year despite being complained about by students."
"The student union isn't very active or useful."
"The campus is not very well built."
"The library is old and small. There's not enough space."
