Cons

What are the worst things about studying at your university?

2016

"Leeds is a small town and there aren't enough jobs for students here."
"Deadline management could be improved to avoid peak times."
"There aren't many healthy food option choices at the union."
"There aren't many places for sight-seeing in the area."
"Sometimes finding housing in upper years can be difficult as the quality of areas can differ greatly."
"It's often quite busy in the libraries and cafes etc."
"As a joint honours student I feel there are frequent clashes with timetables and limited options for study choices."
"Societies are treated in a hierarchy (sports are higher than cultural societies, for example) and allocated funding, attention and support as such. The gym on campus is very expensive and lecturers in smaller departments are not as well supported as in larger departments."
"The workload is very high. There isn't always time to recap your work as much as you'd like."
"There's not enough academic contact time in every course. The university can sometimes feel too research-based rather than student-orientated."
