I spent 5 of the best years of my life here. Good university with great sports and social. A beautiful city to boot. Had a reunion there in the student bar earlier this year.

I came here as a student and had a highly enjoyable time there, that said there isn't that much to see at the University. Some of the buildings are nice but most aren't stunning. Not really one for sightseers.

Very friendly university. Seems like a good place to study. Spread over most of the city. Student accommodation is reasonably priced and of a good standard if a little way from the main campus
