The University teaching is very professional, nevertheless lecturers never seem to have time to talk and are in a hurry to leave the lecture. Lecturers treat students like they are superior and university staff are simply unfriendly, especially in the registry and psychology department. Students are treated unfairly. Living on campus is nice, the facilities are great but it is managed really badly. Rooms are being checked and personal belongings taken away. When there's a real problem then nobody cares. I feel that the staff treat students like children and without any respect. The campus shop 'essentials' is way to expensive, better to go into town for your weekly shop. On campus the library is amazing though, very modern and comfortable, great place to study in peace. The campus is green and its beautiful in the summer. But the University lecturers and staff need to be friendlier and more understanding in regards to costs, documents and overall treatment. The University doesn't understand that the money is coming from the students, they take our money but give little in return! Please improve.

I'm international and I don't feel included at all. It takes a long time to make friends and even then everyone is for themselves.
Health and wellbeing services: 
There is a medical centre that is very helpful and a nursing service which you don't even need an appointment for.
Support for international students: 
I haven't received any but I'm sure there must be something.
Support and facilities for disabled students: 
I haven't noticed any.

Alright I suppose. If I have to say more, I'd probably say that the weather was generally a bit rubbish. Didn't mind the local town, sandwiches were good from the shop closest to campus.
