      I did not seek advice from anyone at university. Just speak to my parents.

      Course

      The content has been varied but a lot of the time the lectures feel slightly soul-destroying in how uninteresting they can be. The practical stuff has been somewhat basic (the video/audio modules) whilst the more academic modules have been very dry, and an unreasonably high expectation on how quickly we must grasp certain concepts, though the reporting and writing class has stood out as the best. I was placed in a language class below my capability because they simply did not want to run an advanced class. I can't wait for next year so at least I have more choice over what I get to do.

      Accommodation

      The quality is okay, I have not had any major problems with the state of my accommodation. I picked this one as it was the best compromise between quality and price. My roommates have been horrific and, though reception have tried to help me resolve the issue, they are just disgusting people.
