My daughter went to the University and had a wonderful experience there while undertaking her degree in film. I met some of the teachers during an event and those I met were very nice. The site is well laid out. My daughter said she thoroughly enjoyed the years at the Uni and would highly recommend others to go there.

I really like the Uni. Very modern and awesome quality of facilities. I’ve done Business Management and Marketing stage 1 so far. But the support I was/I’m getting from staff is not as excellent as they claim it is.

Well that’s 4 years of driving back and forth 180 miles each way every few months over. Our daughter just finished her Master’s and she’s had a great time at the uni. And as parents we feel the uni have looked after her well.a big thanks to all the staff.

They accept you unconditionally and then do not give you any deadlines about CAS and do not give you a CAS in many cases. Terrible management. Wasting students time and effort.

Trust the bad reviews. I can vouch for everything they say. Save your time and money and go to a real university. Over prescribed courses, not enough seats for all students, they just want your money. Inconsistent teaching, inconsistent marking and absolutely useless feedback. 2 years in and I’ve hated every second of it.

Poor academic teaching and assessment. I am studying on a perioperative practice degree yet none of the academic staff has recent occupational competence / experience within this clinical practice area. They also provide low assessment score yet do not justify this within their feedback so you cannot improve.

Good, very modern and forward thinking University. My son went here and was taught and looked after by a group of very knowledgeable staff in the Engineering Department. He did very well and received high grades. There is a cafe, shops, restaurant and a student union service area. Parking can be a problem at times however

I thoroughly value my time as an under grad here. Staff of all departments were always there to lend a hand, especially when times got tough. We had all the equipment and space we needed for my Geography degree, as did my partner as a Radiographer. Could not recommend spending three years here highly enough.
