I like the high quality teaching at the Business School as well as a friendly, supportive atmosphere. On the other hand, Chemistry department workload was too much that most started hating the work. Some courses like physical chemistry were very badly structured and didn't build on knowledge; just had random theories from different backgrounds and we were left alone to figure out the basics. Careers service is quite poor, have to book a 20min slot at 7am on the day and may not get one as everyone tries at the same time. 20 minutes is not enough. Career counselling should be better. Although lots of external companies do come, the careers department itself is of little help- they simply check cvs and cover letters rather than help on a 1-1 basis.

Great university experience, I study physics there. Whilst the university experience as a whole has been great, the university and physics department themselves need a lot of work. The university invests millions into fossil fuels whilst being "eco" and the physics department runs weirdly, and the whole exam thing is a bit of mess. But overall, my time here has been a solid 4/5.
