Aesthetic campus a short distance from town, clubs, and a lot of student housing areas. Historically good university and always near the top of rankings. Definitely better for humanities, social sciences and the like, than for STEM courses. The university is good for sport IF you're keen to be part of 'rugby lad' culture. Other options end up being sidelined to allow the rugby teams to walk over everyone else. Overall enjoyed my experience here but would definitely have gone to University of Bath if given the choice again - I came close to transferring there before my final year as it offered better teaching and job prospects, while being similar in terms of quality of sport and social life. Definitely found this to be a haven for rich kids from the Home counties (Surrey, etc). There are normal people around but it can be hard to get a large social group outside of this if you're not part of a sports team, otherwise you'll probably feel surrounded by a bunch of Millys and Williams talking about their gap yahs while sipping from their Pret lattes.
