The staff were seriously amazing, I’ve never felt so well supported and encouraged by teachers before. The union was also very friendly and dedicated to representing and helping students, with great services available. In terms of nightlife, you can grab a nice pint in Egham or on campus, or head out to Windsor or into London for clubbing. But it's a pretty quiet place - definitely don't come here for a party, but that's not everyone's style.

    University is great. It has, and will still, teach me life skills such as budgeting and independence. It's really worth it.
