Amazing fun, was able to meet a wide range of people from across the UK and studying different courses. Made lots of new friends who I have stayed in contact with over the last four years and hope to continues after graduating in September
Good quality rooms, and good facilities. I was in self catered accommodation and so really enjoyed being able to cook my own food and discover new dishes to try and cook. Having a cleaner twice a week and having our washing done too once a week really made it feel like a home from home.
Library has a huge range of books suiting to various different courses. Varying sizes of lecture halls and seminar rooms all in good condition. Two rugby pitches used every week for training and matches. Hockey Astro also used every week for both men and women’s teams. SU night is Wednesday and is always a fun evening.
Throughout the four years all lectures have been relevant and interesting. Has broadened my knowledge of the agricultural, marketing and business sectors of the UK and global economies. Amazing lecturers and course leaders happy to talk to you whenever you need them and want to help you to do well.
University is in the middle of the countryside so “city life” is non-existent. The countryside life is peaceful and like home from home. I couldn’t imagine going to university anywhere else. Perfectly suited to me.
First year gets everyone on the same page agriculturally, businesslike and marketing. Bare with, in second and final year you are able to “specialise” more being able to choose a module or two allowing you to gain relevant experience to suit your career aspirations. During 3rd year you’re on placement doing something you want to do, learning first hand the industry you want to go into
