    Simply, it's great. I haven't encountered anyone who's had any (major) problems.

    What did you want an opinion on specifically? The Uni or the City?

    I'm not exxagerating at all when I say my time at Hull was the best three years of my life so far, and that nearly everyone I know there would agree. If you speak to students and alumni they generally have nothing but praise for the university and the city.

    I too would be interested in this! I went to the Open Day and loved it, and at the moment it's my first choice (I want to study psychology).

    I don't know much about the city though, I always think it's a dump but it didn't look too horrible when we visited!

    It may not have the reputation of a Oxford or even a Leeds or Manchester but when it comes down to it, Hull is excellent in everything a student needs.

    Top ten for student satisfaction
    The Student Union was voted the best in the country
    Apart from a few buildings its a lovely looking campus
    The Library is being redeveloped and by this time next year will be finished

    The only negative I would say about the uni is the sports facilities are not the best but apart from that, I really couldn't be any happier with the place.

    Also the city itself is no where near as bad as the media say it is, as a student you never have to visit the rough parts of it and also if Hull wins City of Culture 2017, it is going to get a lot nicer and have loads more stuff to do as well.

    If you visit the uni again you should go on a city tour, I did this when I visited on an applicant day and it disproved all the negatives I'd heard about Hull!

    I've attended the recent open day and I'm very impressed with the campus and staff. I'm going study Criminology with Psychology in 2014...pending my completion of my Access to HE Course
