UCL (University College London)

Cons

What are the worst things about studying at your university?

2016

"Places can sometimes be too crowded and finding a place in the library can be a struggle."
"The accommodation is so expensive both in and out of university halls."
"It's expensive to live in London, accommodation especially. Sometimes, tutorials can just be like another lecture."
"The cost of living in London."
"There is not enough support or facilities for extracurricular activities."
"There's not enough room for all the students and not enough study spaces."
"It can be very difficult to find a study area and the number of library spaces is insufficient. This has had a negative impact on my studies and concentration. Little guidance was offered when I was selecting modules and dissertation topics."
"It's expensive and feels very big and anonymous a lot of the time. It's oversubscribed and the lecture halls/libraries etc aren't big enough. Social life could be better at UCL."
"A very compact study space with few laptops, so people have to queue for them. Also, poorly organised support resources for study and revision."
"The cost of living in London and poor quality of some of the halls of residence."
