Being by the the ocean is great. Loads of fresh air and space, it doesn’t feel crowded. The library is fantastic although it could do with more study spaces as it gets full pretty quickly. The city is great, loads to do, loads of pubs and bars as well. The uni itself is great. The teaching (for my course anyway) was top notch, very enthusiastic lecturers of which a large number (again for my course anyway) were world leaders in their fields. The housing in portsmouth has a lot of variety and as far as student prices go not too bad either. Plenty of student halls but also loads of private stuff about. Would highly recommend living down in Southsea near the coast. Highly rate Portsmouth uni, had a great time and feels like every spent was well worth it!

I love the city, I like how the uni halls are spread across the city so you have choices and there's private and uni owned housing. Some uni buildings are a little further away from the main areas like the library to the main campus area. The union are well advertised I feel there could be more attempts to get students involved. In terms of teaching it can be hit and miss, I’ve done my undergrad and postgrad in different school faculties and there’s a massive difference in policy which is confusing. It could be more coherent and better explained. Most concerns are listened to but some do go not resolved.

It's a peaceful environment and lecturers are so easy to get a long with. The transition from college to uni is a bit overwhelming and no one really prepares you for that, so probably some groups for people who quickly moved could be beneficial and make the transition a bit easier.

The lecturers are great and it's a great place to study in. The facilities are great overall, we use Macs for example and the library is always a great place to go to do any work. Since I've been here there have been a few data outages/hacks which have meant I can't access online resources which is annoying when I have work that needs doing. There have been a lot of pushbacks on a sports centre that was meant to open last year which has been frustrating. I understand this is out of their control but there has been a lack of communication about ay updates.

Good uni, everything’s close together so not too far to walk. Everyone’s relatively friendly and will help you. The buildings are easy to navigate and all have different elements and study spaces. The library is close to the uni and very big with lots and lots of books and resources to help you study. The halls are nice and offer lots of events all year round. The union always has something going on from dance parties and movie nights to vintage clothing sales. The teaching is good and there are lots of opportunities for placements and to tailor your course to you
