Chester Student Guide – A student’s honest opinion

Chester

A student’s honest opinion

The good thing about Chester is despite its size, there’s still a lot to do. I come from a bigger city so I was surprised that the nightlife was still pretty good. The drinks are pretty cheap too!

The typical historical buildings of Chester.

Chester is a really pretty city, and therefore a downside of this is the amount of tourists which come to Chester on a regular basis- in the summer it can get pretty crowded!

As far as the university goes, I find that they have a good amount of resources and facilities for students. There aren’t that many societies, but if you want to set up your own one, just round up 12 friends and you can start your own one- I did and it’s so much fun!” Tom, 21

Reading Student Guide – A student’s honest opinion

Reading

A student’s honest opinion

“Reading wasn’t my original choice of university, but now that I am here, I wouldn’t change it for the world.

I’ve found most of my lectures and courses either interesting, exciting or challenging. This was what made Reading a top uni in my books. One slightly annoying thing is the location of the uni on top of a hill- it’s a struggle to walk up some mornings!

There are nice parks in Reading.

The town centre is okay, as is the nightlife, but with any uni experience what mattered for me the most was making friends. It’s really easy here and I found Reading to have a really international community in the Student Union, the societies and living in Halls.

I’d definitely recommend Reading to anyone.” Tara, 21

Wolverhampton Student Guide – A student’s honest opinion

Wolverhampton

A student’s honest opinion

“Wolverhampton has a bit of a naff reputation, but I am not sure why because I think it’s a great town- it’s not a major party hub or a historical centre, but the university is pretty good choice for students with some great courses and lecturers.

The town has everything you need. There’s enough nightlife to satisfy even wild party animals and a good range of stores. What more could you ask for? Your university experience is what you make of it, and it’s not the club venues or the shopping that matters, but who you go with!

Of course if that that is not enough for you, Birmingham is quite close by so you can experience the city life.” Sabrina, 20

Coventry Student Guide – A student’s honest opinion

Coventry

A student’s honest opinion

“Okay, so Coventry often gets a bit of a bad reputation, but I think it’s a good place to study- and that’s the main reason for choosing a city- for studying!

A view over Conventry.

So Coventry may not have the big party lifestyle of London or nearby Birmingham, but I’ve made some great friends here since everyone is so welcoming- which is something you don’t always find in big cities. The nightlife is decent enough, high street shops are in the centre and there are good sports facilities.

As a vegetarian I highly recommend Browns, which is a bar in town that serves up some good veggie dishes.” Wendy, 21

York Student Guide – A student’s honest opinion

York

A student’s honest opinion

“Studying at York has been a great time and I will be very sad to leave!

A view over York.

It is a great city that isn’t too small but isn’t too big either so you don’t feel overwhelmed. It has everything you could want like the usual chains but there’s lots of independent shops too. Walmsgate has some cool retro shops and small book stores as well as my favourite cafe called Meltons Too- it’s a must for any visitor to York!

History buffs will also love all that York has to offer- there is literally something historical around every corner. The Jorvik Viking Centre is one for the tourists- but beware, it really does smell like back in the Viking days…!” Hugo, 22
