The university is good as a whole, good facilities and lots of investment in the uni, but the lecturers on my course (econ) often seem more involved in writing their papers than teaching students


So far so good. University has its own train station making it convenient to commute. Plenty of society's so there's something for everyone. However not much diversity in some courses so may feel like you're the odd one out
