I’m proud to study at Teesside, it’s a great university that’s really passionate about providing the best teaching and support for it’s students. I feel really well looked after and supported by my teachers, who helped me to improve my expression and intellect, as well as a responsive SU who do a lot for students, as well as throwing a load of great events and coordinating some amazing societies. There are loads of sporting activities on offer, and Middlesbrough has loads of things to do, with loads of great clubs and nights out in town.
