“As a student with disabilities I was easily able to move between all my classes, and the university deserves credit for how accessible they’ve made their buildings. Academically, I was pleased with the level of difficulty on my Business and Management course as I didn’t feel it was too basic nor too advanced, and the university even set me up with a work placement.”

“My biggest complaints about studying here are that the Wi-Fi drops a couple of times per day, and the parking situation is pretty chaotic. Apart from that I can highly recommend the general experience of studying here.”
