Overall, I seriously do not think I could have had a better university experience. The friends I made have become very close friends. The quality of the university in terms of the classrooms, course modules, lecturers, library and overall environment has led me to believe that I couldn't have had a better experience anywhere else. I am proud to say that I thoroughly enjoyed my three years at Northampton University.
