    It’s definitely a great emerging uni. Keeping with the times in relation to diversity among students unlike Russel group Uni’s

    It's a great University, and you won't regret coming here; the societies are amazing, the night life, while annoying for some, is also amazing. A lot of local shops offer good discounts for students.
