The university I attend is pretty good. It may not be high on the league tables but they do offer students a lot of help with their studies and have 2 amazing and huge libraries. One on each campus. College lane is huge compared to de havilland. However, I much prefer the later, as it has a more small and cosy atmosphere. The careers service is very helpful and provide us with advice on interviews, CV’s and opportunities during the summer and after university.

Herts is a good uni with loads of areas I’m still exploring being that I’ve been studying there for two years now. The campus on college lane is beautiful especially at night when the water falls on and the lights come on. De hav campus needs renovating, understandably the older campus but you definitely get your money’s worth on college lane if you prefer a modern look. There is a rat infestation on de hav though that makes you not want to walk alone because you’re not sure at what given time something will make an entrance. But you get your own en suite and a reasonable price.

University of Hertfordshire is a great university as it has 2 campus's 10 mins away from eachother, however i wish i got to make more friends durIng my time at university. The uni should provide free printing and cheaper food on campus plus more variety when it comes to meal deals

The facilities at hertfordshire are not the best, the computers are slow. The staff do not give you much guidance with work. You have to wait 4 weeks to recieve your marks. The careers service isn't the best

There is a modern campus and plenty of food facilities on both De hav and College Lane. It is completely self study with not a lot of teaching support. The library is massive and has pretty much and book and the fact it is 24 hours with parking available at night makes it easy for completing last minute assessments.

It is a reasonably good university, however it has room for growth. The university lacks in facilities for art students, and doesn't take care of the students who are in the creative arts.

An ok uni in general but a definite lack of organisation and what ever problems you have will never be solved.

Enjoyed my time at uni, good facilities and equipment for my course, had everything I needed. Night life was not bad, the forum being the only place you could go but still a good night.

The campus itself is brilliant, it is well organised to cater for many subjects. The only issue would be parking, it’s either very costly or not available. Even the nearby streets are highly against student parking. Overall with all the facilities available it is a great university.

De Havilland campus has the best university buildings as they are modern and is the hub of the university in my opinion. De Havilland is seen as the more lively campus. College lane has better looking accommodation than De Havilland, however quality wise I would say the campuses are almost equal, except College lane’s new accommodation buildings have better kitchen facilities (not Telford though). I study Marketing with Spanish and my course so far has been hit and miss (I am in second year). Most of the modules are relevant but some of the lectures lack engagement and just read off of slides, not providing real insight. That being said though, I have had a few excellent lecturers who make the subjects more interesting and are more straight to the point with their teaching styles. My course hasn’t been particularly challenging, it mostly consists of report writing, some group projects involving presentations or group marketing activities. In terms of events this university lacks more exciting night life options at the forum and more events to cater to everyone. They should have more urban nights at the forum playing rnb, hip hop, basement and grime because a lot of students want this type of music during their nights out and they cater more towards house music. Overall the university is decent, nothing out of the ordinary in terms of education or social life.

It’s very diverse, and I get to know a lot of people from different countries. The facility is very good especially the learning resource centre.

Thought university wasn’t for me but when I arrived felt a bit home sick but everyone was very helpful. Got to meet loads of people on my course and on nights out. The student union makes lots of nights out. Summer ball is really good but tickets are expensive. Lecturers could help a bit more I think

The campuses are very well facilitated, there’s newer buildings which are quite good. There’s a couple of gyms, swimming pool, outdoor and indoor halls for sports. Lecturers are usually very helpful. The student union offer lots of different services, although some members pledge to do certain things but never do. WiFi is poor, and halls are quite expensive

Good however tutors could be a little less relaxed when it comes to pulling up disruptive students. Curriculum is well thought out and have always prepared me for my assessments.

Good facilities but unorganized. The library is a credit to the uni and really helpfulThe lecturers differ in opinion so they mark work differently. Times of lectures change last minute and lectures can often be late or forget about the session.

The uni has a really good campus however it's extremely expensive. Most lectures are really good and care about students The courses need more organisation

This university is okay. It has a good library. There are new facilities opening for science people but that's it. There are newish football pitches and the gym gets packed out quite often. I heard that the courses aren't that well run when it's a hard course.

Campus is okay but could be nicer, facilities are good, student union how’s a variety of events. Career services are very helpful in finding suitable career paths for students who aren’t fully aware of what they want to go into

Organisation for sports and events is very good, sometimes there is timetable confusion but the housing is really nice.

The university is well set out and has great facilities on site, including the LRC and restaurant. I think the restaurant is slightly overpriced for it being in a university. The shuttle bus is good, but I do not agree with it being £1 and I think that this is very expensive for a 5 minute journey, considering I’m already paying £9,250 a year.
