Overall opinion

I would never in a million years recommend this uni, literally everything needs to be improved and sorted out and the staff need sacking from their jobs. My advice would be avoid this place like the plague

Quality of course and lecturers

I came here expecting to receive a high quality education due to the amount of debt you would be getting into, however when I arrived here it was quite the opposite and a complete shock at that. The teaching styles and quality of teaching are absolutely horrendous, the lecturers are totally unprofessional and incompetent and if there was any justice they would not be in the jobs they are in. They treat students in a very condescending and demoralised way and have no sense off fairness neither. Th course is repetitive and amateurish and is certainly not something you would expect at degree level. YYou get barely any help whatsoever in helping you with your work, instead lecturers are more concerned about your private life - totally unacceptable. There is also a lot of bullying that goes on at this uni and it never ever gets sorted by staff, apparently the uni is in debt and hopefully one day it will get shut down for good.

University facilities

The library is ridiculously small and the books and materials are ancient and very limited, the computers are also extremely slow and outdated.

Student union

The Students Union is again a joke, it is restricted to a tiny room at the back of an empty corridor with very unhelpful and unfriendly staff members. Unless you are into sports you will not find any other club or society to join at this uni. Everything is extremely limited and of very poor quality.

University life

The town in which the university is situated is nice but very small, there are a few nice bars in the town centre. However, the uni bar is literally like a shed and very old-fashioned. The uni itself is far too small to ever be buzzing. If you wish to live amongst narrow-minded and ignorant people, be bullied if you are remotely different and don't expect good facilities or education then this is the place for you.

All I can say is absolutely terrible, the people who live here in this uni all seem to be clones of each other and if you are individual in any way your life will be made hell.

Job prospects and careers service

I wouldnt expect any employer to look favourably at this uni, it already holds a very shaky reputation. It really is not worth investing your time in here and it will honestly leave you feeling very disillusioned.
