Admission teams are not professional compared to any average university. Some university staff are very helpful but some are lacking in experiences they do not know how to resolve issues I have all the evidence for it . So I am asking all Uk and international student to make sure to have alternative option open to anyone as University of Hertfordshire is not reliable. Try keep it 3rd or 4th choice in ucas. If you do not believe me try get in touch with ask Herts regarding anything I bet your experience will help you decide for the bright future with excellent career which is the major concern for any intelligent student. read more

My experience with the university hasn't been a great one unfortunately! I enrolled on a Master’s course with University of Hertfordshire as it is my closest university offering the course that I wanted to undertake and I wanted to benefit face-to-face lectures and interactions with other students. Due to COVID and university decisions surrounding students on campus, this hasn’t been possible, however, I have still been expected to pay full tuition fees, for what amounts to an online course. If I had wanted to do an online course I would have picked another institution to study with. Although the academic element of my course has been fine (and comparable to that of an online course) I have found that other student support services have been almost non-existent. I have found the university to in-flexible and not student centred in the least. It is a business and treats students as numbers to help them meet the bottom line. Due to the above I would not recommend this university. read more

The campus is dirty and disorganised, with entirely ineffective security. The Dean seems to have zero power when it comes to managing departments and this greatly shows in the overall poor quality of education here. read more

The campus is really nice, plenty of places to meet with friends or get food/ study. Most of the staff I have encountered have been brilliant and when I have had a problem it has been rectified. The societies have been brilliant, I've been involved with several and even on the committee for both a society and a sports team. read more

If you're thinking about coming to this Uni, don't bother. Don't get me wrong, it's decent.....if you have 0 problems that need to be resolved in your time being there. Which I'll tell you now, you 100% will. You basically pay 9 grand to teach yourself, and this pandemic has proven that nobody actually knows how to do their job. The nightlife isn't great unless you know people, which thankfully I did, everything is overpriced and the shuttle bus shows up when it feels like it. The WiFi is s***, the exams are worded in such a complex way that it's basically setting you up to fail. All in all, if you want a rapid decrease in your mental health, and have repeated emotional and stress induced breakdowns like me, this is the uni for you... read more

First year at this uni, during the pandemic has been somewhat kind of a nightmare. Before the pandemic hit, the on campus accommodation that I lived in had many technical issues! One of those was the vacuum that was already broken before me and my housemates had moved in. When Covid hit, I had to leave my contract early, and the university withheld my security deposit within any actual reason and enforced a damage fee on my household individually which was very heartbreaking. At one point they still wanted students to pay for a full term even if you decided to leave the university and head back home! We have been very vocal on our disappointment on how they have handled their students this year, hopefully they’ll do something about this and comeback with better grace for the following year. I have emailed just recently in regards to receiving my security deposit back as the pandemic has hit myself and family hard and employment is becoming hard to find. I’m due to just transferring! read more

In general, the University is fine but if you have any problem it’s really hard to get help. Wellbeing is ordinary at best and not helpful (not enough follow up to make a difference) it’s like the whole uni can only provide the bare minimum but if there’s actually trouble it’s all hush hush. I’ve had to do formal complaints for bullying and what they told me was, you’ll ruin the other students life and it’s not really worth it but we have 0 tolerance for that behaviour. Ended up winning that complaint but honestly the school bullied me more than the student did. So yeah don’t expect help. read more

I did BA Fashion&Fashion Business for 3 years and honestly...my first year was not as great. The tutors rushed the work and expected you to know everything...as it got to the second year we had a visiting lecturer who taught us for the whole year. Again, shabbles as she did not understand everything and read off a powerpoint. However, some lectures did understand and also explained things well and made it interesting! The libraryy is amazing but the food? No. Get take away! The facilities is amazing, enough campus space to chill and relax! Would recommend coming here for uni life as it is 30 mins away from London! read more

There are always computers available in both libraries and the internet speed is good. Silent study areas are also readily avaiable and rooms can be booked for group work. Have career help and you may have the opportunity to do a practice assessment center which is a valuable experience. read more

Christ almighty, spare yourself and look elsewhere! Hatfield is an absolute dump and incredibly depressing to be in. Everything is overpriced due to being so close to London. Teaching on my course (Psychology) has been incredibly underwhelming to say the least. I'm in my final year and can't wait to graduate. Lack of communication, opportunities and disorganisation is everywhere. You are literally paying to teach yourself. Most of the time your grades and subsequent degree classification is based on pot luck due to inconsistencies with grading, or dependent on whoever happens to be marking your work on that occasion. May be different for other courses, but don't expect a great deal of support in terms of networking and career opportunities either. Facilities and support services may be available but for the most part are there for decoration, absolutely useless if you need help with something specific. read more
