Cons

What are the worst things about studying at your university?

2018

"There are not enough computers and some of the lectures are disorganised."
"The recent redevelopment of some of the campus buildings has made doing university work more difficult. This has included things such as removing computers from the library and turning that space into recreational areas and having fewer spaces to sit down and eat in. While the university offers a variety of clubs and societies, the allocation of funding and space to these groups could be better organised."
"A lot of the university buildings are not open 24 hours a day."
"The computers are extremely slow when logging onto the system and this wastes a lot of time that could be spent doing work or printing and can make you late for lectures."

2016

"The town is very grey and old and there's not as much to do around here as I'd like. The shopping options are pretty poor too. Feedback on work from some tutors is brief and unhelpful."
"Sometimes modules and assignments were a bit mixed up or confusing."
"It's not a very nice area to live in."
"There have been some problems with timetabling lectures and classes."
"Marking is sometimes inconsistent and there could be more exam support in some modules."
"The north is cold."
"The library can be noisy at times."
"Occasional tight deadlines can lead to stress."
"Feedback has been known to be slow in the past. However, I do think effort is being made to resolve this."
"The science department doesn't have access to the most modern equipment."
