Lovely university, with really great tutors and a really nice layout of three campuses next to town. The nightlife isn’t too amazing in the town, but if you’re in a group you can grab a taxi into Nottingham which will wind up pretty cheap and there’s a big scene there. The St Peters Quarter has lovely little shops to eat into your loan, and I recommend winding up your summers at the Darley Park concert - beautiful music and fireworks!

    My uni is not perfect but it’s not the worst. I got bonded to it over time and it’s hard to have to leave it now. They really help with employment and all so at least I’ll get that.
