Most helpful review

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 city and campus is all in one, which means it’s easy to walk around inbetween classes to get food or meet up with friends. Housing is usually nearby with relatively cheaper prices too!

I went to the University of Portsmouth for 3 years. It was the best experience I have ever had. From the campus, having so many facilities and opportunities to the societies which take you above and beyond new skills.

While I was studying there for 3 years I had to come to terms that because I’m from Slav country, I will always be not welcomed and mistreated by the students and staff. The teachers were biased and the students horrible.

This city based university is easy to get around, includes well kept lecture halls and seminar rooms, enthusiastic lecturers and a support system to help those who find the transition to university difficult. My advice is to make the most of any opportunity that comes your way.

Although most of the facilities are ok, the staff do not care about their students wellbeing. Nights out are fun but there are no safety precautions to protect the vulnerable. Student wellbeing is a great service but not widely acknowledged. The Careers service are ok, but not great at helping. To be honest I would not recommend

The campus is very spread out which means you might be late to some of your classes if you don’t leave early. There are a lot of societies but mainly sport societies which you have to pay for on an annual basis. I wish there were more unconventional/niche societies. The staff is very supportive however and the careers department can be used up to 5 years after you leave.

Worst experience of my life. The lecturers don’t care about you. It’s so expensive way too expensive for a student and it definitely wasn’t the university to go to. No matter what you’re going through they don’t care about you they don’t give you any kind of support with essays and when I decided to leave because of mental health they weren’t like let me see how we can help they simply said okay whatever. And then made it extremely hard for another university to accept me by giving them false information about my grades. Don’t go here

Portsmouth University has brilliant facilities and the lecturers are excellent at explaining all details. There is a lot of support for students that are both high and low achievers. The standout department is the careers service, who are absolutely outstanding and go above and beyond to ensure that students who are seeking graduate roles are supported on their career journey. The societies are not bad - as a student living at home they were a good way to meet friends. There was not much social support for students living at home and thus it was quite hard at times to feel involved in the social aspect of University life.

Perfect balance between city and campus living. Tutors are amazing and supportive, easy to get hold of. Huge range of clubs and societies. The vice-chancellor has some weird views (eg budget cuts but gets a pay rise??) but the staff does the best they can in the situation. Portsmouth is a great city too.

Upon moving to Portsmouth I became extremely homesick, but this soon dissipated as I got into swing of the wonderful university life at Portsmouth! There are numerous factors I love about the university, including but not limited to the constant access to library and therefore course materials, the way the campus is embedded in the city and I’ve encountered lecturers who care more about mental health and grades which appears very rare!

For my course especially the teaching is not what I’d expect from a university level institution. No structure to the course at all and lecturers don’t know how to answer questions students bring up when they should know. Good campus and facilities however the teaching brings the university down. I’ve seen personally first hand international students leave the country entirely and restart at different universities back in their home country because the teaching ethic is appalling

Facilities are great. You get all kinds of great support, if you ask for it! Portsmouth is very easy to navigate. There are lots of opportunities to improve your employability and other skills. Events are great. Student voice matters to UoP. Student engagement could be better. Halls of residence are great. Many opportunities if only you take them! Great experience so far, in my 2nd year.

Good uni. Lots to do. Cheap city (if you go to the right places). Most socities are really good but you have to really get involved. I would recommend looking into them before uni starts, allowing time to save for training or trips if you need to. Really really look into housing and look at reviews for them before picking your housing. You honestly get what you pay for. If you really wanna know what uni life is like, follow the student instagram page for portsmout @Spottedpompey or @pompfessions Gives you a good idea what porstmout is like, social side. Education wise, its pretty good. Lecturers are pretty awesome.

I’ve been to three universities and this was by far the best! Lectures were great, the lecturers were really helpful and the night life was even better!

Was a last minute decision to come to Portsmouth uni, but it was the best decision I could’ve made! Everything is in walking distance, and the business school is amazing! Even though the place is rather big you build a close relationship with people as you tend to bump into them on nights out - Purple Wednesday’s FTW! The only downside is that the SU bar has shut this year :( but tbh there’s pubs, bars and clubs on your doorstep so there’s no problem really. Also Rosalind Franklin (James Watson) is probably the most social accommodations, I love it!

It offers many opportunities outside of academics. You learn a lot by working with different people throughout the university and its very diverse.

I love Portsmouth University, the campus is based around the city but buildings aren’t too far away, the university buses are really good at getting you around the city. The library is a fantastic facility, the lecturers are all extremely nice as well as other staff such as study support. It is ultimately a really friendly & nice place to study.

Portsmouth is a great city to work and study in. I study in the Eldon buildig which has an affordable art shop and beautiful lecture theatre, as well as good computer labs and large studios.

For Sports Science the lectures are either long, boring,pointless, bants or just dead. but the practical and labs are good. They'll offload loads of info onto you which is frustrating at times

Everything in this university is well organized. They are committed to help their students in all possible ways and help them with all sorts of problems they are facing. They have a really good career and employment support team to help the students to get their placement or job they always wanted.

I started suffering with my mental health and was unable to attend uni for 6 weeks. My lecturers were fully aware of the situation even to what medication I was on and how much I was taking. I got to the end of the course with very little support from the uni, and said that I was unable to pass. 3 years later I am now taking the course again at Hull and it's amazing. Portsmouth certainly shook my confidence, and worsened my mental health.

Really good lectures and an amazing campus. The social life and night life is incredible. WiFi was awful in halls but around campus is decent. The library is amazing and computers work perfectly. People are nice and good atmosphere. Careers services are not as good as I'd expect and I got asked to leave when accidentally going to careers advice in the wrong faculty
