Pros

What are the best things about studying at your university?

2017

"The fantastic facilities and the support for students preparing for the workplace. The academic guidance including weekly LinkedIn sessions, CV help and maths centres etc were great. Although academics is the main focus, a lot of effort is put into support societies, clubs and extracurricular activities and events."
"There are so many facilities. Everything is new/high tech, the buildings are exceptionally clean and modern and the staff are all really nice. It's a friendly place to study and really does feel like a family. Staff are happy to offer extra support if you need it such as staying behind after lectures to clarify things you don't understand etc. There are so many opportunities to get involved in new things by joining sports clubs and societies."
"The campus makes it feel like all the students are close together and it means you don't have to go far to visit other students. The students' union is amazing, they are always finding great ideas for nights out! The teaching is also really good and my course had a combination of lectures in big groups and small tutorial groups. Lecturers are always friendly and on hand to help with anything you don't understand."
"The fantastic sporting opportunities across a whole range of levels and excellent sporting facilities available to use. The great choice of many different and interesting modules as well as many different social opportunities. We have a good library with a range of different study rooms across campus. There's a great choice of halls and a welcoming, fun and exciting freshers' week."
"The main things were the amazing facilities as everything is in close proximity (including off-campus houses and halls) and the positive atmosphere on campus. The friendly, 'work-hard play-hard' ethos made it feel like everyone was 'in it together'."
"The range of societies and sports to get involved in, the great social life and the enjoyable course."
"The access to sports and facilities, both free and paid, the halls and the community feel within them and the small town, big personality feel."
"The facilities, the community feel, the halls experience and the students' union."
"There are a lot of opportunities available to students including volunteering, societies and socials. We have good lecturers, good student support, good student accommodation and excellent sports facilities."
"There are great extracurricular activities, from nights out to themed events, and many sports opportunities to take part in at different ability levels."
