This university doesn't care about the students. All they care about is money. I guess the only office which is operated there is their finance. Every member of staff in this university gives different information, one contradictory to the other....

This university doesn't care about the students. All they care about is money. I guess the only office which is operated there is their finance. Every member of staff in this university gives different information, one contradictory to the other. I had paid my fees and still they kept me in provision saying I didn't pay the fees. When I enquired about it, they said it might be a system error. Seriously!

In terms of the campus I attend, I personally like due to the fact that it is small and easy to get to places. I don’t like huge campuses as it is very intimidating. As well as this, the teaching at my course is amazing and the classes are small.

In terms of my subject area, I believe that the the teaching is great and the support i receive in my assignments really helps me in future assignments. The travel to and from university is also great as it is free for students which is very useful.
