Hi, I'm a current second year student at Chi studying in the humanities department. What course are you thinking of applying for? (I may be able to offer tidbits of info even if it's nothing to do with my course)
For overall, general thoughts on the uni:
Pros: it's a small campus and a small, pretty safe city; if you like socials the SU does WSIHE every week and a lot of students go to that (if you're in a society, especially a sports one, they usually do pre-drinks/socials and have outfit themes); the library staff are really helpful and the library has a lot of resources and study spaces; the careers team are also really helpful and supportive; there's a few places in town that students frequent (Chantry and Vestry); there's also museums and places like that nearby for day-trips or if you're not much of a partier
Cons: some students have struggled in recent years securing accommodation for 2nd/3rd year; the number of staff is already not massive and there's talk going round that there's going to be cuts/redundancies made; the elected SU staff are more into maintaining the social level of the bar rather than acting on student feedback to change things
Also, not sure whether this will be a pro or con for you but it's a very Christian uni. This year there are 2 Christian SU societies running and they do make themselves known on campus at least for one week a year trying to turn people. There's also been mormons in town trying to convert people every so often the two years I've been here too. On campus, students who are of a different religion don't get much - from what I've heard the chaplain is just very Christian and kinda rude to people and the prayer room is very small and not great.
It's also very LGBT+ friendly. There's always an LGBT+ SU officer and an LGBT+ society. Sometimes, personally, I (bi, enby) think the way they are is a little performative but other people find it to make them feel more supported and welcome.
