Clubs and social environment

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.


"The sports and societies are good as they are all free to join, unlike at most other unis."

"The sports clubs are so great and free! I am attending judo, pole dance and dancing and it's all really great."
