The campus is an extensive green space with a lake which is very scenic. It’s a large campus but it feels like a community which is safe and friendly. The university have recently invested in a new library which will be useful for studying and resources. It’s an incentive to work harder when the facilities have been invested in. My course is large so it isn’t very personal and I feel like there should be more contact hours, particularly due to the level of difficulty and cost of the degree. The lecturers are readily available to help you during their office hours which helps when you don’t want to raise an issue in front of everyone in the lectures. We could have more emails from the student union as I don’t really know much about it other than the weekly club nights.


Really good green campus, the staff are very friendly and the rusu is always putting on extra activities to do during the day
