7.8 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"The location is far away from the town, which isn't ideal but travel to and from is cheap. The campus facilities are all very good and up to date, especially the library and learning zone. My accommodation (superior en-suite in Alexandra Park) is really nice and well kept. Some parts of campus (the spine) look a bit messy."
