    Overall:
    - Good location -Good facilities provided - Lovely people that attend the uni - All lecturers are fab!
    University:
    Uni life in first year was much better than Uni life in second year. I do believe that's down to work load and the fact we live off campus now so the student bar isn't always accessible.
    Course:
    The course is excellent, it's really interesting and we're constantly learning new things! The content of the course is exactly how I expected it to be, looking at different aspects of Psychology and more in depth studies. The lecturers are always around to support you and never give up on you!
    Location:
    Although the campus is 'in the middle of nowhere' as a lot of people say. It's not a busy area which means it's easy to access and it's very pretty!
    Accommodation:
    The accommodation was good, in first year I stopped in All Saints Court which was one of the nicer accommodations. There were a few problems with minor things but all were resolved quickly and effectively.
    Settling in:
    I settled in quickly to to Uni and made friends immediately. The Uni provide a good range of activities and events for students to get involved in which makes the whole settling in process easier.

    Overall:
    I really have had such a good university experience overall! Halls are so good to meet new people and make friends for life! Have had some trouble with the noise though and have many sleepless nights. But really would recommend going to Leeds Trinity as you become more familiar with those around you as the university is small and makes it a lot easier to make friends.
    University:
    There are great services especially the library, the starbucks on campus and the sport and fitness gym. There is lots to get involved in, however the nightlife around our location isn't very good so have to go into Leeds which is quite expensive in a taxi journey. Other than that I really enjoy uni life.
    Course:
    The course content is very interesting and I find it very enjoyable. However the reason I did not rate my course a 5 star is because the way it is taught. Lecturers just read word for word off powerpoint presentations which make lectures very dull and can often draw my attention else where. Though overall I am satisfied with my course as it has given me lots of new knowledge.
    Location:
    It is quite far away from the city and the nearest shop is a 15 minute walk or 5 minutes. There isn't many restaurants or food places or entertainment in the area. Though it is a quiet small village where I feel safe and at home, which is why I like the location.
    Accommodation:
    My accomodation is a new building so I had high expectations for when I came. However in the first few months of university, the building was still incomplete and there was a lot of construction and building still going off which caused a lot of noise and disturbance. Also, we have had many troubles with hot water not working in the whole building over atleast 4 times. Also, furniture was not moved in straight away in the communal kitchen so we had to go a month and a half without a table or sofas. Other than that I like the layout of the building and how modern it is. I like the location as well because it is on university campus and is 5 minutes away from the lecture theatre.
    Settling in:
    The main reason for this is because of the delay to get our accomodation ready in time and the constant hassle that came with it, including noise, missing furniture and faults. Other than that I found it really easy to settle in and make friends and get my barings because the university is small.

    Overall:
    I love the campus as it is a really close knit community and is really good in terms of making friends. The overall experience has been great so far and it is a uni I would highly recommend
    University:
    There's always something going on around campus and they have lots of good sports teams and societies. The students union is really friendly and work hard to make things happen for students. The welfare office is really good and the welfare officer is always around for people to speak to. The campus has a lot to offer perspective students
    Course:
    Overall it is a good course but it can be challenging sometimes
    Location:
    It is in a good city and is close to headingley but is a bit further from the city centre which makes it hard if you commute
    Accommodation:
    It is rather expensive but the location is perfect as it is on campus so lectures are only five minutes away
    Settling in:
    I struggled to begin with as I found it hard to commute and found the course challenging to begin with

    Overall:
    Great course for the career I want to pursue, supportive staff and a developed sense of community. The library facilities are very good and I feel that I am enjoying my time at university whilst also making the most of it.
    University:
    The Student Union and welfare service work well and the university has a good selection of facilities.
    Course:
    Placements are extremely useful, some lecturers could be more supportive but overall it is a very good course.
    Location:
    Easy to get to using public transport but is in a bit of a more residential area and so there aren't many places to go between free periods.
    Accommodation:
    I have no experience of the student accommodation as I commute from home.
    Settling in:
    Freshers Week was good to help students who didn't want to party or drink all the time settle in with the Flipside Events, such as bowling.

    Overall:
    My above comments are picky but I loved my time at this uni!!! I transferred from another university and can say that I felt more secure and felt like a person not a paycheck
    University:
    Everything was fine, however more laundrettes could have been provided as there were only six washing machines to cater around 600+ students. There could have also been a shop to buy daily items on campus but not charge a fortune
    Course:
    everything was spot on but I have given it a four star rating as my final year was a bit of a drag due to travel arrangements and could take me around 3 hours to just get home. But lecturers were also there if you missed a lecture and planned a meeting to catch up. Furthermore k enjoyed the lectures spaced out as I could use each day to be specific in what I looked at and studied.
    Location:
    Leeds trinity was in a lovely location but there could have been more bus and train routes/ services that go from Bradford straight to horsforth without having to change
    Accommodation:
    I loved living in Kirkstall. There were some issues that I had based on the kitchen being too small to cater for 25 people and the laundrette was quite a distance for certain halls!!
    Settling in:
    It took me a while but I found that by going to uni close to home and my friends I could come home on a weekly basis and not spend a huge amount of money getting there.

    University:
    I like that the library is close to the university and that you can reserve books online
    Course:
    I enjoy my course and the lectures
    Location:
    I would prefer if the uni was in the city center so there wans tneed to commute as much to get to the city centre
    Accommodation:
    I don't live in accommodation however it looks good and I haven't heard anyone complain about their accomodation
    Settling in:
    I settled in quickly and liked that the university set up a 'Get ready for uni' day as I am friends with the girls I met in the day

    Overall:
    This is a very good university for those who want somewhere a little quieter with more one to one from lecturers.
    University:
    The library is very resourceful, there are nearby amenities and regular trains go into Leeds city centre every half hour.
    Course:
    Due to the smaller numbers of students, there is more one to one from lecturers.
    Location:
    It is not centred in a busy area, it is a nice quiet area with local amenities nearby.
    Accommodation:
    I have seen the accommodation and for the price, it is suitable.
    Settling in:
    On the first day I felt very comfortable, everyone is so warm and comforting.

    Overall:
    its a nice small uni and you get to know everyone pretty quickly and the lecturers are all very friendly and helpful.
    University:
    theres a bar, canteen, library, launderette, atm machine and a gym all nearby.
    Course:
    Practical learning and module co-ordinators are usually available short notice if need be.
    Location:
    Close to the center of Leeds but far enough to be classed as the countryside.
    Accommodation:
    at all saints court there was plenty of space in terms of the kitchen and bedroom and we had a cleaner once a week. Great atmosphere as student bar was across the path.
    Settling in:
    everyone was friendly and plenty of information on transport and local area on the first day.
