I would definately pick this university if I had to make the choice again as everything is brilliant. Lecturers are interesting and more importantly interested in their subjects. The university itself is good and the social side is well organised and very active. There is a distinct lack of males for those who are coming to meet people but as we are part of the university of London, you can socialise with other students from different courses to meet guys. I definately adivse going round the accomadation choices before hand because that is the only thing I would do differently. I currently live in Mary Brackner House which is the offical halls but is run by the company UNITE who I would now avoid like the plague. Apart from that I would completely recommend the Royal Veterinary College to anyone who wanted to study an animal based course.
Course and Lecturers
All of the lecturers are experts in their field and are very easy to talk to. I particularly find their handouts useful and we usually recieve the powerpoint they use printed out so we can follow it or take notes on the slides. Most of the lectures are based on powerpoints and they are recorded onto our university website for easy review of the lectures. We also review our lecturers to give any feedback. Another good point in our lectures are the quizes they sometimes use in the lectures which are taken on small remotes and helps people join in if they don't feel comfotable shouting out answers.
This is the only downfall of my uni, although it is not the only halls of residence. My ahlls was run by UNITE which are a company I would not like to live with again. We pay 127.30 a week for a room with ensuite and shared kitchen between 7. I did not begrudge paying that until things started breaking and not being fixed with no customer service what so ever and no help. If anyone does stay in a unite building, the first payment can be defered until your loan comes through but none of us were told about it so I did struggle in the first term to pay everything on time. Getting help from them is very difficult and it also didn't help that we had to pay 300 pounds for the internet up front for the year that is terrible. There are other halls of residence that I have been told are very good.
London is amzing and everything I thought it would be. You can get anywhere you want any time of day or night and there is so much to do you won't be stuck for ideas.
There are loads of computers with 24 hour access and the library is good for our purposes but only does books for around our subject. Books can be brought in on request and I have never had a problem getting the books I need. The food at uni is delicious I highly recommend it!
Clubs and Societies
There are loads and loads and loads of clubs of every sort.
There is no proper union pub but you can go to the university of london one.
There are loads of job prospects and there are loads of postgraduate degrees to choose from as well.
Having said what you have said would you recommend your uni?
I really love uni life, enjoy learning new things and meeting new people. it is a fun place to learn and a safe environment. I like that it is fairly small as you can count on lecturers to help and guide you. Settled in fast and love it even more each day.
I have found fom studying here that there is Really supportive staff and a beautiful campus. Use the library from the beginning to do you work or when term 3 comes you will struggle! But I would certainly recommend it
I actually cant believe it theres Even hot girls on the Politics course! Its such a crazy uni I love it so much! The food is here is so yummy I love it! I love all my friends I have made and my course is wicked!
