I might be going there, i just wanna get a feel of what the uni is like. I don't mind if the answer is no, I just want to know i what kind of people to expect there.

And by 'bait' I mean what kind of people will you often get, are they serious about their degree and studious or is it party central?

It is really dead but you'll probably get comments saying how exciting it is; probably because the students of Portsmouth uni are the type that think Guild events are the highlight of the uni experience.

When we are allowed to travel again, I suggest you actually go down to Portsmouth and take a look.

Hi! RosoPoso

I'm currently in my third year of studying criminology with criminal justice, so I can't comment about specifics about your course, but I can talk about the uni in general.

At Portsmouth, the academic support team are really helpful. There is a librarian and support staff for each subject and they too will help you with anything regarding your course and are really good if you are struggling with researching material. Lecturers are enthusiastic about what they teach to help you develop. Most are also currently doing research related to their topic area, which is really useful.

The student wellbeing service is helpful and offers a wide range of guidance. Alongside this is the union which offer lots of guidance and experiences in your university experience. There are loads of societies to choose from and they accept people from beginners too. The societies are all really friendly. it would be worth checking out their social media to have a see what they offer. Every Wednesday afternoon is when societies are given time to train, so your timetable does not interfere. Then in the evening is when socials go out for Purple Wednesday, where everyone dresses up etc.

Most clubs and bars are a 5-minute walk from university halls, so there is no worry in your first year about getting there and back. The train station, supermarkets, shops and Gunwharf Queys are all within a 10-minute walk from the halls. There are also lots of independent shops and bars etc along Albert Road in Southsea where a lot of students live after they have been in halls. The University bus runs every 20 minutes and is close to most student houses. A lot of shops, bars and clubs offer a student discount and I would say drinks and stuff are pretty cheap, especially on student night where drinks can be £1.

I would suggest looking at the university and union social media to get a feel for the university, as visiting during COVID isn't possible.

So far I have enjoyed my university experience at Portsmouth.
If you have any further questions please feel free to ask.

A bit of both.

Met plenty of party-students, but also many students that never partied at all and focused entirely on their studies. Though I feel like this is a pretty universal thing across most Universities. Kind of goes without saying that the majority of the people pursuing further education are serious about their degree, otherwise they wouldn't have taken out £30,000+ in uni debt lol.

one bit of advice: Don't choose to stay in Harry Law Hall, Wi-Fi is ****, they know this and do **** all about it. Also circuit laundry: terrible 4 Washing machines: all currently out of action and have been for a week bc they wont connect, 2 of which have been broken for months
