(Perth College) has potential to be good in 10-15 years, but incompetent and rude admin staff alongside mediocre facilities, no student union, very few societies (most of which not worth the time) as well as poorly managed student halls (an outside door couldn't be shut, giving open access to the flat, which was never fixed despite several complaints) are just some issues which plague the university.

I’m going to the Perth college campus to study HNC Music. Perth for me is a decent size city of 50,000 people and there are plenty of shops and activities to do. Met loads of good people, although not enough international students, but a nice student body. I chose this course because it is a vocational approach to your 1st year in university and covers all the modules I need to work in the music industry.

The university doesn’t have enough activities to do, not enough support and not fun enough.

Very supportive staff especially in the history department who provide fascinating topics to study, especially for Scottish history and highland history, among with other topics. Library is very good and it's easy to get books from other campuses. Lectures are recorded as well.

Good uni but no facility for outdoor sports which is a shame as current students are unable to make use of this environment and therefore are unable to have full student experience based on their course.
