    Overall:
    Honestly St. Mary’s University, Twickenham is a great place to study. Compared with other it is quite small and everything in mostly in one place. They provide great services if you need help and have a wide variety of societies and clubs.
    University:
    Wednesday is bus to club viper night- there isn’t much going on in the day except sometimes there are event for volunteering and part time work.
    Course:
    My tutors seem really approachable and they always respond to my emails in a timely way.
    Location:
    The campus is beautiful and green, and Twickenham is a quite place with low crime rate
    Accommodation:
    The location of most student accommodation is amazing since it is on campus or down the road.
    Settling in:
    There are lots of events going on during fresher plus induction lectures where you meet people on your course.

    There wasnt a varied amount of societies there were mainly sports clubs and as a non sporty person it didnt appeal to me

    I would give it 4 stars
    University:
    Haven't experienced a lot of it because I commute everyday
    Course:
    So far the lectures and seminars are very good. I feel like i have a lot of support already
    Location:
    It's a nice location but the area is expensive making it difficult to find off campus accommodation
    Accommodation:
    I don't live in the halls but it's all catered for around
    Settling in:
    The staff were very welcoming. It's a small uni so it makes me feel more at ease

    Overall:
    For much of my university experience I had a wonderful time. But I was very badly let down when I needed support and I think it has ruined my whole experience.
    University:
    I enjoyed uni life for the friends I made and things I did for myself ie going out and finding good accommodation. Services here are terribl . Library awful, roughly 3 bookcases for english students and that is it. No welfare provision or very ignorant and limited. Had a few good counselling sessions. Disability officer could only offer me a 1 hour session on organisation and recommend that I drop out for a year.
    Course:
    Lectures and Lecturers very entertaining and knowledgeable. But they have provided negligible student support and zero mental health support. Have to beg to receive feedback for essays and still no joy. I was a model student 2:1and first class grades for 2 years until mental health finally broke me down. I loved my department and university until I discovered there was going to be no help for me when I needed it most . Disability service is horrendous. They just let me drift away and I am now completing course at home and very isolated and still next to no support. I have been left hanging by English department and Registry for upto 12months at a time despite my constant pleas for help. Surely they must realising how damaging it is for a mentally ill persons condition. I truly believe they have made my condition worse. I am determined to complete degree by may 2016. I have handed in 2 essays this year with minimal help from them and still got good grades (still no feedback/an aged to force out feedback for one essay). Atleast I can be proud at the and and say I did it alone despite illness and unfair treatment. I will be officially complaining once I finish university.
    Location:
    Not much night life but close to london.
    Accommodation:
    Nice campus accommodation in 1st year.
    Settling in:
    Enjoyed 1st year course, lecturers made it fun. Very much enjoyed social life in second and third year before breakdown. Very good friends.
