Royal Holloway, University of London


What are the worst things about studying at your university?


"I don't mind the area but, after a while, you realise that there isn't much choice about where to go for a night out. You either end up always going out to the same places and seeing the same people or you can spend money on travelling and having nights out in central London."
"I've had problems with the way some of the lectures are conducted."
"There's not a very active social scene."
"It's not as close to London as I had anticipated."
"It's quite a quiet area so some students want a more social environment."
"Sometimes I wish it were a City uni and a little bigger."
"Not all lecturers are approachable and the gym isn't very good."
"It is a small university comparatively so the nightlife is not great."
