I'm so happy with the course content of the degree I followed. All my lecturers were exceptionally good! I Love the built environment and the soft and hard landscapes of the university of Portsmouth of the university which is an ideal for students , to do their studies and enjoy the life. And I'm extremely glad about the guidance provided by the advisers of Careers and the Employability Centre with regards to the business ideas!!!! The support given by the University Student Wellbeing service is excellent too!!! The university library is full of resources and staff is amazingly supportive!

The careers service, especially the guidance from Adviser Luke Hahn, has been invaluable. The mock interview conducted by Luke was insightful, and the feedback provided highlighted key areas for improvement, which I found extremely helpful. The careers service has been instrumental in enhancing my employability skills and providing clarity on career pathways.

I started my university journey in 2019 (BA in International Relations) and now studying for my MRes and starting my PhD in October 2024. I received great support from all my lecturers, especially both my undergraduate and my MRes supervisor. The university provides excellent Student Wellbeing Service and Student Engagement Officers (who are always there for you if you cannot get through counselling immediately, they provide all types of support so that you feel safe, happy and enjoying your university experience). The Careers Team is also remarkable, they organise many events and call in employers from different companies for graduate recruitment and any sessions. I have attended many of their sessions and always found them very helpful and insightful. The library staff is also very sweet and welcoming, never had any complaints. They immediately help you order any books and loan them if needed. I love studying here and it's a perfect city with both peaceful and entertaining places!

Joining this university has been a bit of a rollercoaster. While it is great that the city is a seafront and the university staff are very helpful, there is a limit to how valuable portsmouth university can be. First of all, because of the city's location, there is a shortage of jobs here, which makes finding a part-time job that much harder. Secondly, coming from India, there is a huge cultural shift that international students experience after coming here regarding everything. For the reasons listed above, I would not recommend the university to anyone who is not strong-willed, already experienced, and/or has a concrete plan of their career progression.

The University of Portsmouth has provided me with all the resources necessary to thrive and excel in my area of expertise. From abundant software, to the library that's open 24/7, the student experience has been great! In addition, the services provided are quite relevant to my course, and have helped me bridge the gap between my Bachelors and current Masters course easier. I really enjoyed the career services and mental health services as they ensured bright future job prospects while having a clear headspace. Jona S.

The careers service are great and always send great resources about graduate opportunities. I feel comfortable enough to contact them with any queries I have. The campus has a great feel too and all the buildings are unique which I really like! However I still feel there is room for improvement from the Student Union, I am never aware of any events being held and my friends at other universities have had a lot more interaction with their student union. Furthermore, I have joined societies and although in my first year they were great, nothing came of my subscription in my second year which was disappointing (Law Society).

the course could be more productive especially if you're studying an MSc. Publishing a paper and more practical session would be recommended. Independent work in the lab is recommended.

OK uni. Go to class and study. Can find a society if you want. Some odd ones set up by groups of like minded people. Good gym. Depends on course as to whether the uni is the perfect fit.

Portsmouth Uni is good enough just to do the basics of a degree. If you have a problem weither it’s personal or academic, don’t expect them to do anything. My friend got bullied extremely due to the fact they had autism and adhd to the point they are unable to go to uni nor leave their place. The uni didn’t help they made it worse and only saw it from one point even with clear substantial evidence of discrimination bullying. My friend ended up dropping out due to the horrendous behaviour of the uni and the students.

I will say in terms of the course I’m studying which is mechanical engineering the teachers are actually helpful socially jovana which she is the head of the department, she will do whatever she can to make you pass the course only if you are committed to it of course. I will say the university was good for me because the buildings are not far from each other and the library is close to the building too and it has all you need.

Campus is built into the city which is something I prefer. Having one main building I go to which is close by to the main centre and everything is within a 30-40 minute walk of each other such as the beach and shops.

The University of Portsmouth has been a great university for me to come to. I'm very happy I chose it, I was worried initially it might have not been the right choice but my fear soon settled when I got to know people and accelerated into my course. I also got involved in extra curriculum activities which made the rough times a lot better.

I haven’t used the careers department yet, I plan on using it next year. The lecturers, I’ve only ever had a problem with the content taught once, other than that, they’re good at what they do, they teach really well, facilities are great, laptops can be borrowed very easily. They make sure that all assignments are very well known, they’ve got a moodle web page that has course information, assignments and what you are studying, so everything in one place. Well-being is a solid 4/5. Clubs are great, I’ll be bias and say for meeting people a sports club is a great way to do so. And yeah, when you join, sports clubs cost money so don’t join every one of those, but most societies are free, even if you only have slight interest, just join them, join the discord servers too and you’ll meet people fast as long as you engage with socials.

I don’t like the city campus concept. However, it is easy to reach everywhere on foot. Portsmouth is a good city to be a student but a bad city to build a life. It was impossible to find a part-time job. That’s why I gave 3 stars to Careers and Employability. On the other hand they run good events and workshops. Clubs and societes are not functional. They just want to drink and go out. Student’s Union is there but I don’t know what they are doing, ınternet is excellent and teaching is good and democratic.

The worst university I have ever been. Some academic staff work based on the connections without any scientific knowledge. The poor science is transferred to the students by those staff. The research quality is below average.
