I have loved my uni experience, mainly due to the friends I have made - partly at college and also through sport. I would also recommend thouroughly researching your course before applying as I found I didn't like my original course and this was detrimental to being able to thrive and enjoy my time. That said, it is possible, although sometimes difficult, to change course once you're there.
There is a lot of support available if you choose to use it
I think the small group teaching we receive is really important and beneficial I dislike lectures as there is often little deviation from the slides in terms of what the lecturer can offer
We don't have an active union building and the student union is very unimportant to my university experience.
I feel very safe in college due to the presence of 24 hour security in the form of porters. In general, the college is in a relatively good condition, although you can be unlucky and live in one of the older buildings. Location in town is good and is also close to faculties. Cost is very high, but you do get a relatively good room for that if you are lucky.
Yes, it's relatively well placed although that depends which faculty you study at. Cambridge is a relatively small centre so it's very easy to get to any amenities
Very good range and selection. Also relatively good financial support available for sport and society participation
I don't think it's particularly good, especially in terms of personal support. I have previously experienced dismissive, backwards approaches to dealing with personal issues.
The best years of my life. I've changed in the best way and learned a lot, both from the course and from running societies. The people have also been fantastic.
They are challenging but interesting
Close to everything
They have everything
We need more space. It is really crowded. The teachers are great and supportive. And there is a positive atmosphere. The head teacher is great and cares. He is very active.
The career advisor is made available to everybody, which is very helpful. She is knowledgeable and makes sure everything gets an opportunity.
Maybe class sizes could be smaller to make sure every student has a better understanding of the content.
It isn't very representative and diverse.
The library is very good, it has enough space and resources.
It is a little distant.
There is a lot to do but not necessarily reachable to students who can not afford it. Biased towards high income students.
Its a lot of stress, but I've had the time of my life. Truly embracing the work hard play hard hustle. Very sad its my last year
Careers services provide lots of help with getting us thinking + work shops and careers fairs
Don't use SU facilities a lot of aside from SU events. So not suitable to to comment on this
Don't use much of them - sports centre + library v good
Yes. V central
Lots to do
Very helpful in supporting
It is an experience different to most of my friends at different unis, work is prioritised over social exercise, but you expect this when you apply and this is what you hope for
Lots of events to attend and unis reputation is useful in the job market
Dislike that sometimes too much is expected in terms of, workload, but the standard of teaching and what you get from it is faultless
Never really felt the impact they have but are helpful for those who require it
The law faculty particularly is exceptional
Everything is central, don't need more than that- Bike to get to the furthest of places
Lots of good different sports and societies that I didn't even know existed in the past
Having supervisors is incredible and allows teaching to be personal and more useful
I am still getting used to the Cambridge life. my college is a bit far, but I've found a good cohort + some activities
Love all the careers fairs especially for law
Lectures vary on the lecturers- Too much work
Some buildings are quite nice, others are alright
My college is really friendly but there are no shops or anything around
Plenty of stuff to do around campus, but some sports are really far
It has been hard to meet regularly w/ tutors and DOS
Academically- intense socially- not amazing but not awful
Lots of careers fairs + plus lecturers put many irrelevant ones (for me)
Comprehensive and clear - though some not as great
Not overly fond- They assume all students have the same view
Fine. Lots of focus on rugby
Pushed academically + a good social aspect
They are overly political. This is particularly given their priorities over students
Yes for my college at least
Support system is very good
More supervisors would be good
Poor + sided on political events
V. bad. Have had significant issues w/ exams mitigating circumstances office when computers crashed during one of my exams and deleted my essays
Really enjoying uni. Although very stressful at times that's more to do with work load rather than support services
Don't really know a lot about it/ don't often engage with it
