Accommodation provides plenty of privacy and own living space. Oxstalls gym is well equipped, but no deadlifts allowed? Ridiculous health and safety reasons which is due to their own fault by putting weights on top floor. However, gym is cheap. Clubs - large emphasis on 'going out'. Because of the focus on social outings rather than progression, most captains/coaches are chosen based on if the face fits without consideration for skill or experience. However, some societies are a contrast and have a real vision for improvement but are underrated (weightlifting). Careers Service - AMAZING, unless you're a sports student. No consideration for this large student population with exceptional talent. Tutors - Supportive pre-2015... After that, the support from tutors is almost negligible. Only a minority of e-mails are returned. Perhaps due to over investment in facilities/GrowthHub, tutors no longer cared for? Disappointing experience - Not for those who are serious about their future.

Lecturer "too busy" to mark any work, but requires it hand written, then scanned, then sent to her so that she can see that we are doing it, Of course we don't ever find out whether it was right. Who would have thought that merely doing the work, without any feedback, would magically improve our work? Computers are still windows 7, take ages to start and freeze, the circle of doom. Online library can't find half the stuff it thinks it has, makes looking for sources really annoying. Loos are awful, don't flush. Nowhere on campus to sit and eat your lunch, or just hang out. Staff seem to have given up.

There are three campuses all with different facilities. The campus i study on is FCH- Francis Close Hall. There are loads of clubs and societies to join at the university. Excellent Wifi on campus and halls of residence. The careers service also known as the Future Plan team are very helpful and offer a range of help from work experience, volunteering, internships etc.

The campus is extremely pretty and it's reasonable size. However, the university it's self is extremely unorganised and can be very unreliable due to constant timetable changes and cancellations. Personal tutors are meant to help and support you yet there always asking you to go to student achievements who are just as useless. Careers advisors are good at helping and supporting. Internet can be tempential . Cheltenham is a small town and doesn't really have a lot to offer.
