The support the staff and other students have given me throughout my time at university have been amazing and I would not be in the position I am now going into my third year. The student ambassadors are fantastic and are always there to help out if you are having any problems, they are really good and giving advise supporting you throughout your life at uni.
Not many university's offer the course I am studying, in fact only 2 more uni's offer this course. Staffs was always going to be my first choice uni because of it being NCTJ accredited which is important and what employers are looking for in graduate students.
The university halls are really nice, I stayed in and en-suit room in my first year. I recommend staying in halls in your first year as it is a great way to meet new people and interact with other students.
Staffs uni is located in stoke which is a really nice area, there is a massive part just up the road form uni where a lot of students hang out, especially when the sun is shining and everyone is having a good time, there are plenty of shopping centres and places to go food shopping.
The facilities at staffs is open 24 hours which is amazing! it has a large rang of journals, magazines and periodicals for you to do research and get your uni work done on time. The sports facilities are fantastic with top of the range tennis and basketball courts. The university's SU bar is called the Ember lounge and has a lot of events on including comedy nights where acts such as Bill bailey have performed. The Ember bar has also held acts such as The Prodigy and Wheatus!!!
The clubs and socs and staffs uni are really good and have some amazing teams, in my first year I was a member of the Animation Bites society where people get together to watch films and play console games. Not only can you join an existing society, if you get enough passionate people together you can create your own society and gain funding from the university and go on trips and host your own events!
