This is a great uni. It is close to public transport, whilst also having an array of cheap take out, restaurants and fast food options for students. The freshers events are great to make friends and get involved. Don't miss any! The departments are very friendly by letting people change courses, providing links to careers website and going the extra effort to provide the best experience. It's very diverse in culture and backgrounds and reflects the London environment.

    5 stars. I think it is the best university in terms of its location, style of teaching and the societies. Everyone is welcoming and helpful. The university itself has many facilities for its students. There are alot of shops, buses, train stations/dlr and restaurants around the university.
