I've enjoyed it but it's been quite lonely at times, as I'm from Ireland and have no family near by. I also don't get student loan, so I live off and pay all my bills off what I earn when at work at weekends, which can make me quite tired, and struggle to have time for work in uni too. It's also hard to live off less than £400 a month.

I have loved every second. The university is incredible and very social. Have already made friends for life. I hope soon I am able to get more involved with the course and work very hard.

The food at university is overpriced and unaffordable for most people. Transport is very expensive for students- bus pass is 250 for the year. The university facilities are great and tutors are helpful but the housing is poor and run very badly.

Textiles BA (Hons)

OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING
Tell us about your overall university experience so far.

Over the last three years I have enjoyed university. I enjoy what I create and the new machines that we have the opportunity to use. However I am not one of those students that can rely on hand outs from family to be able to afford to survive at university - so I have worked two jobs throughout my time at university and I don't feel like universities fully understand that a lot of students have to fend for themselves. As my student finance does not cover my rent, which is on the slightly higher end of homing in this area, it is hard to balance work life, social life and university life. I enjoy working and am looking forward to finishing university, but I do not regret having attended.

It's fun and nice, a bit rough in some places and can be improved but an amazing experience for someone special from an international country. A lot of fun memories made.

Illustration BA (Hons)

I am not sure. I like it here, everything seems right, but I haven’t felt right yet. Having a lot of doubt about myself and the course, though I think I did make the right decision. I think everything about uni in general was far too hyped up and I am still waiting for the feeling of everything being amazing to come. I think overall it is ok. It’s not amazing, it’s not awful , but it’s just not as much as I hoped or expected it would be. A bit disappointed but there’s nothing horrifically wrong. The course is taught weirdly sometimes, though it is getting better and I am starting to find it enjoyable (before I wasn’t). It being ok isn’t a bad thing, and maybe I will start to grow to like it more.
