"What made this university for me were the people. The university itself is not great. During my time here there have been four students deaths, there has been a lack of care for student wellbeing and the students of my year have faced strikes, covid and such awful messing around by the university. They released our results late and incorrectly and offered no explanation as to why or any condolences, and then every lecturer and office admin took leave during results release period which was so inconvenient as when students encountered problems no one was there to help. My course was interesting enough but FTT response to joint students was awful and many joints felt out of place, unknown and just very lost in that department and that side of our degree which was just very sad, My university experience was great, but the university itself was not."
"My uni experience has been good so far. I have had the opportunity to do things that I never imagined that I would be able to do. My advice for new student would be to not have too many expectations as to what uni is going to be like just come with an open mind and a positive attitude and you will have an amazing time."
