Most helpful review

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.

Relatively a good university for my undergrad course; top 30 in UK for it. Next to the seaside so the ocean breeze is a good thing. Windy and not too cold like other inland UK cities.

University don't prove anything for £9000. We have to pay extortionate printing costs. They don't invest in sport at all. Computer facilities are not enough in terms of numbers. Lecturers are good however
