Campus is easy to get around- good looking- good location easy commute from bus/trains/subway. Car park across the road. Very inclusive university everyone is welcome. Business school is very helpful- good lectures and always help if needed. All lecture slides put online so if you miss class you can catch up easily

I love all the clubs and societies that are very engaging and consist of multicultural groups. The resources we have at uni are also great and modern. The learning is structured in a great way that works for everyone as long as you make the effort to be present.

BSc (Hons) Optometry
5.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
5.0 / 1 review

Content is great and everything you need to know both for exams and in the outside world. Mix of practical and lectures, with some labs and group tutorials. Is tough as you do attend lectures every day more or less 9-5 but has lots of little breaks to study or do additional reading in.

BEng (Hons) Mechanical and Power Plant Systems
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

This is a good degree overall but it is hard to find job opportunities specifically for this course. You get a good overall knowledge of both electrical and mechanical field altogether. Course has a wide focus on industry needs as well.

BSc (Hons) Environmental Management
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

I have found the degree overall very interesting and applicable to the area of study I would like to follow in my career. The degree covers many aspect of environmental management, from planning, to environmental assessment, aswell as practical tools like GIS and health and safety. The low number of students on the course means a better relationship forms between us and lecturers, so better feedback is given in addition to a better understanding of the course.
