Pros

What are the best things about studying at your university?

2016

"The mentors and activities as well as good students' union events and communication between students and staff. There's a lot of easy access to support."
"The extracurricular activities, social opportunities, job prospects and networking opportunities due to the location."
"The social life and nightlife in the city as well as the students' union and societies. We also have great library facilities."
"Sheffield itself has a wide range of nights out and has the safety you would expect from a small town. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved in the social side of things and it's a very good university for my course."
"The students' union is highly respected, we have a great careers service and it's a lovely city."
"The people I've met and the experiences I've had doing all the well organised extracurricular activities like sports clubs and volunteering."
"It offers a variety of activities and there is a diverse university environment as well as a mixed collection of students."
"It has a good reputation with excellent and friendly staff as well as varied and interesting courses. There's an award-winning students' union and modern facilities."
"We have the best students' union. The location is not in the city and is a great environment for study as it's not too busy or too remote. There are a lot of oriental and halal shops nearby. We have high-tech libraries, especially the new one (The Diamond), and we are ranked very highly for engineering. The cost of living is not so expensive when compared to studying in a university located in London. You can go to the Peak District by taking a 30-minute bus and you can go hiking or cycling and enjoy the mesmerising view of nature."
"Friendly with a great learning experience, social life and students' union. We're located close to a large national park."
