Please tell us more about the social environment, sports clubs and societies and anything else you think candidates need to know about life at your university.


"I am part of the law clinic, which means I've met people through that and enhanced my career prospects."
"It has a great sports centre and gym. The university is full of societies for everyone."


"The university offers a range of sports clubs and societies that anyone is allowed to join. This is the case whether they want to play competitively or if they want to just join for the social side of things."
"There are many societies to join, almost one for every interest and it's pretty easy to create a society too."
"Subzero is the best club around in my opinion. Sports clubs are free and there is a variety."
"Sports clubs are free, which is amazing. There are also many societies and it's easy to start up a new one."
"The university does have a selection of events and clubs but the town has a lot going on too so don't forget to check out both."
"There are loads of sports and fitness areas with loads of activities to do."
"Sports clubs are good but the training sessions are very often during lectures, so you might not be able to join the one you want due to clashes."
