Everything is relatively close on campus so not much walking from lecture to lecture. Student union is great with many bars for socialising.

The campus is really well layed out and feels really big but it doesn’t actually take too long to get from one side to the other. The facilities are excellent with constant improvements being made to them. Everything is well organised and there’s never been a time where I haven’t been given information on what I was supposed to be doing.
