    Overall a great university - and the only campus uni in London so you can experience campus life but still experience London. I've heard support is lacking a little for some courses e.g. Comparative Lit, but English is generally great with enthusiastic and helpful teachers.

    So far it has been alright, I enjoyed the English modules more than the Drama. Second and Third year will be better because you can choose from a variety of modules.
