University of Portsmouth
8.1 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 100 ratings in 2017)
In a few words
"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."
