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!

I absolutely love it here. I’ve been able to study a really up to date and specified course and have found a society that allows me to thrive within my other interests. Living and going out is really reasonable compared to other places. Also being by the sea is a massive bonus.

I had the best time at the University of Portsmouth! The School of Civil Engineering and Surveying was a great place to start my journey into Civil Engineering! The staff really care about the students and are willing to help them all to achieve the best possible results! The careers service (SPEC) is next to none and provide us with all the information and expertise needed to apply for placements and role post University. All the lecturers are knowledgeable in their area and have worked in industry, giving the lectures more of a realistic feel!

I wouldn’t recommend this at all. The uni doesn’t care abouts it’s students. While I was at uni I was suffering really bad with mental health and didn’t attend one lecture because of it. The lecturers are aware of attendance levels but not once did they attempt to contact me to see if I was okay. Also the student facilities are awful. I was in a flat that had extreme damp meaning I was ill all the time. Do not go here it will ruin your mental health if you do.

The university is great overall. The course is tailored for the my future with feedback from industry panels. So many societies and clubs, obviously some are better than others. Free wifi across campus thats not slow. Career event atleast once a month. Student union does a lot and its quite major if you get involved with it.

The university of Portsmouth is a fantastic University for studying within the creative industries. It has excellent facilities, experienced, industry minded staff members and a continually updating curriculum. The Creative careers and employability services are fantastic for finding part time work, graduate positions and work placements. A very active student union with a broad array of societies help in making connections with like minded students.

The campus is close together, leading everywhere to be within walking distance — even university halls, which is a great help. The clubs and societies I have attempted to join aren’t great — I was ignored as a new member as I was quiet, which led to me not returning. The union is fantastic, and their bar and support services are brilliant. I haven’t focused on the Careers Service too much, but the connections I made with the Well-being Centre were not strong and ultimately disappointing. The WiFi is just fine.

The facilities are fine, the wifi is good but that's pretty much all that is in Portsmouth! No one cares about the students - they are walking money for the university. Everything is very chaotic, there is no communication between departments. The BA courses are kind of alright, although you find tutors who have been out of the industry for 30 years and who teach you about it or who don't have an idea how to work with a certain equipment and you end up studying everything from youtube tutorials and books you buy, because in the library it is all taken or does not exist. The library is extremely small and always packed, same for any other building. It is a competition to find a space to sit and a plug with electricity is another level of hardness. The courses are with the same structures for years, no new things added ever. My advice is to NOT GO to study a Master's degree there in any case! Worst experience ever!!!

AMAZING!! I've really enjoyed my time here. Everything is so close and it's lovely to go to the beach on a nice day.

Portsmouth is a very small city. The halls I stayed in were run down and cramped. The uni is also spaced out over the city so we were constantly moving from building to building for each class. The nightlife was good however there is very limited places to go to. Overall I wouldn’t recommend Portsmouth as anyone’s first choice as there is so many better equipped places to study.

Was impressed with the open day so decided to commit to Portsmouth , while most people at uni seemed to have a great time- I didn’t. I’d say it was the worse year of my life Don't get me wrong; I did have some good times and meet some good people too, but overall it wasn’t a good experience and nowhere near as good as it makes itself out to be

great business school with a lot of help provided by the business department, the student union is great too as they are always insisting to help students with any confusions.

Would I say Portsmouth is the best university? It's great, for the most part. The lessons and tutors are great and very helpful. The university itself? Not so much. If you have a problem, they don't help you at all really. Me and a friend had a problem with our timetables which they ignored all year. So not the best at getting help for things like that.

The University does not have enough accommodation for the amount of students they have, I and many others didn't get into halls for our first year and it really separates you from the University community. The clubs and bars in Portsmouth are below average speaking as someone who comes from Brighton and the Library is so packed that you're unable to study there and the University doesn't supply much study space for when exam season comes around. Would not recommend

There is no better place to spend your university years. Sitting down on Southsea Common or the beach with a barbecue is severely missed. I left Pompey Uni over 3 years ago, but driving past that Spinnaker on the M325 still feels like I'm going home again.

Had an amazing 3 years at Portsmouth university. The student halls were very basic but mostly in a great location, next to the shops and nightlife and had friendly community to it was easy to make new friends with flat mates and neighbours. In the Summer it was great to be able to live near the sea, everyone heads down to the beach to have bbqs or play football. Lecturers all very helpful, course fairly interesting.

So much support from lecturers and other departments (purple door/placement office). Accommodation is the only problem, halls are very expensive especially for students (the loan doesn't cover the cost) and lots of the private accommodation is practically inhabitable. I would suggest looking sooner rather than later if you want a decent house for an okay price.

On paper the University of Portsmouth looks and sounds great. However, you do feel very lost when you start off there. Along with communication being a BIG issue. I wouldn't recommend this uni as most people I know there either are unhappy or have dropped out or considering.

All in all a great university, very vibrant and diverse with lots of opportunities, the only negative it that the library is not big enough for this very popular university so it's a pain in the arse to find any where to sit!

Only a 1st Year brilliant uni. If you do work on the cloud expect it to cut out midnight for a couple of minutes. Lift in James Watson intermittently works now which is a bummer. But as a whole love everything else.

Love my course and the buildings, the societies only bother with you for the first week then lose interest same as the union, really lovely people though, everyone is friendly and the lectures etc are all so well paced. Love it here.

A great university, widely regarded as one of the most fun places you can be educated. Not only is it fun but it's a great city to live in for three year, with such a dense population there is a real sense of community amongst the locals, student and everyone together.
