As a medical school, the university is brilliant. The staff are wonderful and the quality of education is high. Unfortunately, despite the biggest indoor sports facility in the UK, it is not in the best interest of students and favours the public. There are not many classes I can attend as my timetable clashes with the exercise classes. Also the mental health support is stretched very thin.
