University offers great student facilities and student union is very helpful, setting up plenty of events. Careers service is excellent with mentoring programs offered to help you start seeking a career and also helping you with guidance on your course and life in general! Sports available are extensive with many different socials and opportunities to get involved. Only downfall is the clubs in town are limited for a night out. Often repetitive, however saying this if you're with the right people it's always a good night!


Great spacious campus, facilities are generally good (although I feel like there should be more water fountains available for use). Decent student union with enjoyable events out on however events are all very similar (should expand ideas)
