    Everywhere looks amazing on an open day They always show the best they have to offer. I'm just curious if its still good when you've been attending for a while

    Perhaps google reviews of reading uni ? If you go on which ? Uni they have reviews from current students and they'll be more honest

    Well , i am in my First year and i am studying Computer science with industry year, and i can tell you so far it is great. The campus is big and some of my lectures are like 24mins walk from my dorm. However, during the few days of freshers week( there is still one more day of it lol) everyone is so helpful, the environment is nice and it didn't take long for me to adjust from being used to where i lived. I am sorry i don't have much to say about computer science ( since i haven't started any classes yet) but going on the Universities website and looking at what others had to say might help.

    I would disagree. It is very important to get a gut feeling of a place by visiting if you can.

    My daughter had an idea she wanted to go to a certain uni from the age of 12. When we visited on open day, she reacted viscerally, feeling it snobby, unwelcoming, and cold. She picked another that she liked on open day and was very happy there.
