Both campuses fully equipped with specialist equipment. Lectures very knowledgeable on subjects with hand on experience in the industry. Modern and attractive facilities. Club and societies are mainly competitive sports. Wi-fi pretty good also.

Really good ‘out-of-the-box’ courses. Societies are okay however many are competitive sports, should have recreational sports. The SU run 2 pubs and put on 1 ball a year.

Met some great people but my course was very disorganised, little feedback given and some terrible lecturers. No body seemed to have an idea on what we should be doing. Transferring to another Uni.

The sports campus has everything you need in walking distance. Being involved with clubs lets you get to know more people. It's like living in a little villages.
