The atmosphere at uni is bright and creative. I feel very safe, inspired and motivated when I’m there. Not only that but our tutors are so helpful and go above and beyond for us which further enhance some the overall experience.

The campus is small but quaint, in an area of epsom that is close enough to the city for a good night life, but far enough away to escape to a far less urban setting. Regarding the facilities, there are enough across the campuses that are in a close proximity to each other to be broad, however, when focusing solely on epsom, it is far more limited in terms of facilities as some of the spaces are smaller than comfort would desire. Overall, my experience of the university has been highly positive, and the staff are all very helpful in all aspects of their work, both in terms of teaching and guiding students.
