University of Reading

Cons

What are the worst things about studying at your university?

2018

"The workload can be a bit too much at times, especially when you have a full timetable and are expected to do extracurriculars to help your CV."
"Rent is expensive in Reading and some professors are not as good as others. The library has been closed for the past year and alternative study space is not as good."
"Some modules are a bit unorganised and the campus is so large that it's difficult to move from one building to another for classes without being late sometimes."
"The main library is being worked on and the replacement is of poor quality with a completely inadequate number of spaces for students."
"The lack of study space and library space. I understand that they are redeveloping it but it is hard to study when there is building work going on."

2016

"The library can be really busy at times."
"The car parking on campus and across halls is not the best for the prices paid."
"Other cities and towns have better night life."
"There aren't many extra curricular activities put on by the university. They don't have a lot of extra funding for people to use."
"The cost. Not just tuition but also prices of everyday items around campus."
"A lack of connections with prestigious law firms."
"The system the university has in place for its catered students is expensive and inefficient."
"Price of on-campus accommodation."
"The library is too small and gets very busy. Expensive accommodation."
"Limited number of student night venues and overpriced major events."
