It's a decent university, the area isn't great however the lecturers really try to make sure you're comfortable and get the best grades you can.

The university itself is rather underwhelming, but the course I am on is incredible. The VFX tutors are overwhelmingly supportive and help every individual student flexibly, a lot of the graduates have jobs lined up around graduation time as well.

A great university. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Although quite a small uni, this provides the opportunity to get to know your lecturers and fellow students on a more personal level. If you're struggling there's always someone to turn to in and out of class with the great facilities and added mile the uni will go to help you.

I do an art degree here and I really am enjoying it. It is situated in a very good place with lots of food places around it and travel such as trains and buses. I really get on well with the staff too and there is such a friendly atmosphere

Very nice university, with small groups, so you always get enough attention from the teachers. Good facilities, lots of printers (no queues), and great choice in library, although needs some new books. Could be more clubs and societies, or at least those ones existing could be a bit more active.

Worst Uni ever, Absolutely no support for Three years and had to persevere , past from pillow to post at every junction and problem. The clinical Nurse Tutors should be ashamed of themselves. Rumors they are Told to'' Low Ball '' certain Students is criminal. Give you your assignments and exams and no one is around to help , they all seem to take holidays when you need them most when assignments are due. Shame Shame Shame Shame Shame.

Best university ever. The course i am on (dental technology) is really well organised and the teachers mostly have experience working in the dental industry which is a massive help. Also the university is very wheelchair accessible which is a big help as i use a wheelchair

The campus its self is very modern and clean making it an enjoyable place to study, I joined the hockey team and it has been the most enjoyable thing I have done since I got here. The SU is very modern also but lacks in size making it so most social event have to be done in the study area, I have not been shown any career opportunities at the University, also the internet is all over campus making it very useful.

The Orlando village halls are in very very bad need of a redecorating and preferably redesigning. They don't even have a real oven in the kitchens, it's a table top electric oven that only fits one small pizza or one portion of chips in at a time: this is supposed to feed a flat of 6. The security are over bearing at times and non existent when they are actually needed. The £78 a week rent seems cheap until you realise how truly s*** this place is and that people are paying barely a few pounds more for somewhere that is clean, decorated, spacious and secure. It takes them weeks if not months to respond to most complaints of broken kitchen appliances etc. but barely a day to change a light bulb (they have backwards priorities or don't bother if it costs them more than £5 to fix it). The university itself has a very corrupt management that fire staff without warning for ludicrous, unfounded reasons leaving the students without tutors or support at crucial times in their education.
