The campus is really nice, plenty of places to meet with friends or get food/ study. Most of the staff I have encountered have been brilliant and when I have had a problem it has been rectified. The societies have been brilliant, I've been involved with several and even on the committee for both a society and a sports team.

Absolutely no pastoral care. Huge transphobia problem. Complete disregard for students who don't 'fit in the box.' As a parent, I asked my daughter to leave the university as it was such a toxic, uncaring environment. PLEASE don't send your kids there if you love them at all.

If you're thinking about coming to this Uni, don't bother. Don't get me wrong, it's decent.....if you have 0 problems that need to be resolved in your time being there. Which I'll tell you now, you 100% will. You basically pay 9 grand to teach yourself, and this pandemic has proven that nobody actually knows how to do their job. The nightlife isn't great unless you know people, which thankfully I did, everything is overpriced and the shuttle bus shows up when it feels like it. The WiFi is s***, the exams are worded in such a complex way that it's basically setting you up to fail. All in all, if you want a rapid decrease in your mental health, and have repeated emotional and stress induced breakdowns like me, this is the uni for you...

First year at this uni, during the pandemic has been somewhat kind of a nightmare. Before the pandemic hit, the on campus accommodation that I lived in had many technical issues! One of those was the vacuum that was already broken before me and my housemates had moved in. When Covid hit, I had to leave my contract early, and the university withheld my security deposit within any actual reason and enforced a damage fee on my household individually which was very heartbreaking. At one point they still wanted students to pay for a full term even if you decided to leave the university and head back home! We have been very vocal on our disappointment on how they have handled their students this year, hopefully they’ll do something about this and comeback with better grace for the following year. I have emailed just recently in regards to receiving my security deposit back as the pandemic has hit myself and family hard and employment is becoming hard to find. I’m due to just transferring!

In general, the University is fine but if you have any problem it’s really hard to get help. Wellbeing is ordinary at best and not helpful (not enough follow up to make a difference) it’s like the whole uni can only provide the bare minimum but if there’s actually trouble it’s all hush hush. I’ve had to do formal complaints for bullying and what they told me was, you’ll ruin the other students life and it’s not really worth it but we have 0 tolerance for that behaviour. Ended up winning that complaint but honestly the school bullied me more than the student did. So yeah don’t expect help.

I did BA Fashion&Fashion Business for 3 years and honestly...my first year was not as great. The tutors rushed the work and expected you to know everything...as it got to the second year we had a visiting lecturer who taught us for the whole year. Again, shabbles as she did not understand everything and read off a powerpoint. However, some lectures did understand and also explained things well and made it interesting! The libraryy is amazing but the food? No. Get take away! The facilities is amazing, enough campus space to chill and relax! Would recommend coming here for uni life as it is 30 mins away from London!

There are always computers available in both libraries and the internet speed is good. Silent study areas are also readily avaiable and rooms can be booked for group work. Have career help and you may have the opportunity to do a practice assessment center which is a valuable experience.

Christ almighty, spare yourself and look elsewhere! Hatfield is an absolute dump and incredibly depressing to be in. Everything is overpriced due to being so close to London. Teaching on my course (Psychology) has been incredibly underwhelming to say the least. I'm in my final year and can't wait to graduate. Lack of communication, opportunities and disorganisation is everywhere. You are literally paying to teach yourself. Most of the time your grades and subsequent degree classification is based on pot luck due to inconsistencies with grading, or dependent on whoever happens to be marking your work on that occasion. May be different for other courses, but don't expect a great deal of support in terms of networking and career opportunities either. Facilities and support services may be available but for the most part are there for decoration, absolutely useless if you need help with something specific.

spent the worst year at the uni of herts. came through clearing. very unsociable, societies only religious or cultural, can only really go on nights out on campus as there is nothing going on in Hatfield, accommodation overpriced and security don't care when you ring them up, hard to make friends, tried to move flats and wasn't permitted, literal nightmare. glad that ive left to transfer elsewhere! (lecturers were really nice though)!

Lectures are well educated, my undergrad supervisor was a Cambridge and Oxford graduate. Wifi, the facilities are very modern. However, most of the thing will depend on you, many of friends complaint the didn't learn anything during their course, but at the same time, some of my friends are working now in JP Morgan and other well-known companies.

Poor organisation in a lot of courses. Wifi barely ever works. IT team make changes to setting mid module which prevents us from doing our coursework on the uni machines. In my last year at this uni now and my overall rating i would give is 4/10 at most.

My experiance at Universityof Hertfordshire has been very good so far. I have had alot of support from the staff allowing me to work well. I have met people from various other countries that I would consider my best friends and just enjoy working with them in a group. I am glad that I have chosen this University and would like to continue with the same if possible for my future studies. I am very much thankful to Miss 'Anjali Kapoor'.Without her support and encouragement I wouldn't have achieved this. My whole heartedly thanks to her. Thanks to all the team of University of Hertfordshire.

The only good thing that comes to mind is the student societies and the on-campus pub. Aside from that, the university is terrible, especially for commuter students.
