Not a great university. Doesn't feel like they care for their students, more interested in their ratings and rankings and appearance rather than student satisfaction and health. Mental health services and support are extremely poor with month long waiting periods, no follow ups and not given enough of the much needed funds or attention. I wouldn't rate the university itself highly at all. The only thing that salvaged my experience was the gorgeous campus and the people I met. Halls are extremely poor and horribly organised, during my year the main halls didn't pass their fire safety inspection so got placed in a brand new facility the other side of town, further away from campus. Didn't get any reimbursement for the cost of travel which amounted to £500 and the halls were barely furnished, done quickly in a last minute job. Regarding the courses I took their wasn't enough attention given to all the students. Lecturers found their favourite students and were given preferential treatment in a lot of cases. And there was no consistency across the years in grading meaning previous graduates graduated with higher qualifications. There was also no consistency in aid or advice in advancing with your degree. I got into the uni to study French and psychology but wasn't permitted to repeat any psychology exam to make up the one mark I was missing in order to proceed to honours. None of this was made clear when applying for the course and had it been it would have changed my decision to attend the university. Furthermore they oversubscribed for the psychology course that year which is why there was a higher pass mark and why I wasn't allowed to proceed to honours. But the year below me had fewer people and a lower pass mark to get into honours. Extremely unfair and no consistency. Especially when considered I knew people who were allowed to repeat exams in other courses several times and even when they failed them they were allowed to repeat the entire year, twice! There was also no contact with the university throughout my year abroad to see how you were getting on. Student unions were also extremely cliquey and American-sorority-group-like with sport groups making for uncomfortable experiences at times. The careers services were poorly organised. They had events for graduate jobs organised and available only for final year students where at that point the deadline for applications were already passed and if there were things required for graduate jobs there wasn't enough time to do this. I also booked an appointment with a careers advisor to discuss how to get into a masters course and the advice I received was to look on the university website which I had already done and couldn't find what I was looking for. Overall a superficial university with very little substance. I expected a lot more from it. Not worth the money by a long shot.
