It’s great for meeting new people! A great social buzz (outside covid haha) and lovely atmosphere in college! Lecturers aren’t all the best, but a lot of them do care for the students and help out as much as possible :)
There was a constant daily struggle to find somewhere to sit indoors. Overcrowding seems to be an issue, but I see that they're still opening new buildings every few years, so this situation might improve. Professors were enthusiastic and helpful for schoolwork and discussing plans after graduation. Many Clubs/Socs with friendly members. Wifi available in all buildings and reached outdoors across much of the campus. Even as president of a society, I had no interaction with the student union outside of them bothering me to fill out petitions for candidates I knew nothing about. It was expected of you to just give your signature without asking what the candidate was like.
Spent five years here and unless you live on or near campus or drive, you cannot participate in many clubs, or participate in events. The SU doesn't do much of anything to my knowledge. The WiFi is shocking, mostly used a hotspot. Overall, not great.
It’s a big university and hard to make friends in my opinion. If you live far from the university and struggle with mental health issues it’s hard to find the motivation to come in. I personally feel like I didn’t experience university even though I graduated. It wasn’t the university for me
