What are the best things about working at your firm?

2016

"City based university, which means everything is in walking distance."
"The high standard of the facilities, expert teaching staff and excellent placements."
"The support offered by staff who supply amazing opportunities if you work hard, and the fact that I can walk everywhere."
"Travel to and from London is quite easy. Local businesses are very willing to hire students. Lecturers are passionate about their field."
"They are very caring with students. Feedback works and the lecturers are dedicated. Being Portsmouth, the air is very clean and the sea is a brilliant place to go to when the weather is good."
"Not only is the city a great student town with great nightlife and quirky area such as Albert Road, the university has so much more to offer. From an extensive sport programme (whether it be joining an AU society or the Get Active Stay Active programme for those not fully sporty but wanting to further this) to the academic support offered by tutors, lecturers and the advice and help centres. There is also the sense from all lecturers of wanting us students to do well and doing everything they can to help us achieve the career we wish."
"Some lecturers are absolutely brilliant and are happy to offer help and support. The business school offered some sessions on preparing for interviews and assessment centres, which were useful and worthwhile. The school also offers study support and student support which is very beneficial."
"The support systems that the university has, I've seen friends going through some hard times and the university is the first in line with someone to help."
"City campus but everything is still centrally located. I love the fact that I can walk anywhere and it won't take me longer than half an hour."
"Staff are exceptionally good. They provide the opportunities and let us know what steps we can take to further our career. The facilities for media students are amazing as well."
