Great lectures and teaching, the staff are so friendly. The two libraries are huge, too, and the dedicated humanities library in particular is a big help. The racecourse stadium also holds the rugby world cup, which is really exciting! You'll spend a lot of great nights at Central Station and Liquid and Envy. There's also a load of great theatres, like Grove Park, and loads of great gigs on down The Old Swan and Penny Blacks. There's so much to do!

I think the campus is a suitable enough side to easily become accustomed to. All staff I have come across are friendly and always willing to help. The site has many facilities such as a sports centre and clubs to join in on to help you adjust to uni life more efficiently. Town is only a short distance away with many shops and places to chose from. Large car parking space and bus stop right outside the gates of the university.
