Writtle was highly recommended by a lot of people however on attending, for an equine degree, I feel very disappointed with the facilities and general lack of help. I feel the degree was not at all as described. A couple of the lecturers were kind and helpful however a majority were opposite.

The fact that Writtle College classes itself as a University is laughable. Avoid this place at all costs. Accommodation? If you are from the UK then prepare to be treated like a second class citizen. Foreign students get priority for rooms as the institution can charge them more. It's a great money spinner. I was denied accommodation during one of my years as they were 'full' and had to find other means. When I arrived on the first semester there were blocks full of foreign students. The accommodation itself is overpriced and unpleasant to live in. The food is great is you love to experience food poisoning on a regular basis. Social Life? A single dingy bar which for some reason is often inhabited by unemployed alcoholic 50 year olds. God knows why. The university itself is isolated and in the middle of no where. A majority of the students, outside of the course I was on, seemed overly aggressive with little social skills. I guess this is the result of years of isolation and boredom after attending the college. It was a very unpleasant atmosphere. Eye Candy? This is a stupid question. But if you are asking I would have to say no. The institution is small and after about 2 weeks you have met everybody. There is little opportunity to meet new people. As for the education itself; it was fair. Most of my fellow students were incredibly friendly and supportive, as were the majority of the lecturers. The resources and facilities are sufficient unless you wanted to do anything specific. However, The main lecturers on the course could be very unsupportive and often rude. Students are once again treated as money pits. As long as the fees are paid then they don't care what you do or how you are treated. The whole course was unorganised. All modules on the course could b
