Hi there!

Welcome to the UK

I actually have been going to University in Portsmouth for the past 2 years and I really like it!! It's very unique in the fact that it is England's only island city - which really gives its own character. It's surrounded by the water with many scenic places for walking, cycling and swimming and the history of the city goes quite far back. It's quite densely populated and has a variety of groups of people from different backgrounds which gives makes the culture rich and means its not too hard to find essentials from other nations. :yeah:

Because the uni campus is spread around the city centre it makes it a very student friendly place. Nothing is too far from the main things you want to get to like the main uni buildings, the high street, the beach, designer outlet, supermarkets, etc. There's lots do which can cater for people with different interest and there's always locally run events and activities like music events, the city is also quite creative. It has quite a good nightlife with quite a good range of clubs bars and pubs.

Check out these websites for things to visit and do!

Let me know if you have any other questions or if there's anything more specific you'd like to know about.

I hope this was helpful!
