The location is good, with supermarkets, barbican centre, gym, etc nearby. The staff from the reception is also very friendly, and whenever there is something need to be repaired, the maintenance fixes it very soon.

The journalism department has really good equipment and wifi was always working (because I was on the guest one, eduroam never worked for me). Didn't experience clubs or the SU - I don't think it's a very significant part of the City experience, unlike campus unis. Haven't used the Careers Service either, which might be a reflection of how lowkey it is. Not very oriented to my interests which are in journalism.

Avoid this university like a plague. Huge waste of time and money. The lectures are 10-15 mins long, they do not teach anything and give horrible marks. The teaching is appalling, how the mighty have fallen! They do not live up to expectations! I strongly recommend to go to another university if you wish to learn and have a career, this university was a massive waste of time and money
