Cows. Sheep. Swans. Squirrels. The Newton Park campus of Bath Spa University may as well be a zoo. Overlooking the rolling hills of Somerset, this picturesque, postcard-worthy place is perfect for the lovers of the natural world. All the essentials are here: we've got the general shop, on-campus doctors, the SU (with their unbeatable pizza meals), and of course the Starbucks. Everything is so close, you'll be able to roll out of bed and straight into a lecture. Campus is peaceful and tranquil most of the time, although you may be woken up rather early by the mooing cows outside your window.

    Great, not a problem with anything, the only thing is that it may be frustrating to ask the university questions at times but whatever problem I have is solved within a few days.
