What are the worst things about studying at your university?


"There's not as much hands-on time with tools as I’d like."
"It's in the north of England so it's a bit far from London."
"It's hard to get a break from the nightlife in Newcastle."
"The support network for my year abroad could have been improved."
"There aren't that many contact hours so you need to practise a lot with friends."
"It can get a little bit expensive and it would be nice to have a little bit more freedom of choice for optional modules."
"The sports facilities could be better."


"I often feel that lectures could be more engaging, less content-based. More discussion and exchanging different interpretations of texts."
"Very far north! It's quite a long way away from a lot of my home friend's unis."
"Societies aren't supported as much as they could be."
"Library is always too busy to work in."
"Not enough computers, the union is a bit soulless."
"City feels overrun with students. Lack of good bars and pubs, city is built on its clubbing nightlife rather than bars."
"The gym isn't very good."
"Ricky Road accommodation is nice and cheap, but people still have to fix things and not put it off because it's getting demolished."
"Can be overly focused on social life rather than academic achievement and job prospects/hunting."
"The first year accommodation that is available to undergraduates isn't very good."
