Kings Building at UOE, amazing campus and facilities, sorted with the course and all the necessary facilities are provided for. Regular careers fair for the students are done. Student union is very helpful and in addition to that student union building has an amazing bar with cheap food and drinks.


campus and facilities are very good and labs have good equipment, however movement between campuses and buildings is not always very easy (shuttle bus to kings does not go very often), and my personal tutor has not been very helpful at all. Lecturers are very good in the science department.
