Architecture, Year 2

(5)·By Emily T·Architecture· Jul 2021
There were lots of events on in the city, allowing you to meet lots of people. There was a lot to do and you were never bored. Where I stayed was very close to the town centre, and very convenient for shopping. The room itself was finished to a high standard and I didn't have any problems. The library is big and has lots of computers and study spaces, the students union is good. there are lots of sports clubs on offer. The modules are interesting and help develop your understanding of the course. The lecture halls and classrooms are new and nicely designed. It is a good city to be in with lots to do, without being so big like London. The seafront is unique and Gunwharf Quays is nice to walk around.

A fantastic experience, met new people and had lots of different types of nights Stayed in a house with school mates was very good and had good facilities, I visited lots of different students flats they all seemed very clean and nice, however it all depends on who you get living with you which changes the experience Classrooms where full of up to date computers and had good facilities, the librbsry is 24/7 and has the best possible support from the staff, very good for literature and books as well as receiving one to one help Course was very easy to follow and the support was always available, the lectures were well structured and the tutors where very good at offering all the support possible, the online facilities where also very good and could keep up to date on the work The city was very easy to navigate, everything was in walking distance and easy to get to, there was bus support and easy train access, lots of places to go shopping and to eat out, as well as great venues for nights out

It was very busy. Lots of young students from all over the world were in one small area (before covid) and I met so many amazing individuals that I would of never of met at school I had to rent my own housing from a private landlord so it was okay. Would of prefered halls I am an art student so I use the studio in the Eldon building and I love it. Everythings new and some of the equipment there is priceless We are all creatives that share the same creative goals which can be very helpful when you are stuck Amazing. Portsmouth is so big with so much diversity and so much to do

Very exciting and full of events I stayed in Harry law halls. I wouldn't recommend staying here. Full of rats The library is very useful. The classrooms is very tidy. The sport centres are nice. They were very interesting. They covered lots of topics. This made them interesting City life is good. Lots of bars. Lots of things to do.
