    • Anthropology is very creative and allows me to integrate many different interests of mine such as drawing,photography,research,participan observation and film. Sociology has been very interesting when in comes to applying classic theories to modern day and analizing sociological phenomena.

    • I’ve received one to one support and all lecturers I have emailed are always willing to help in any way possible.

    • On the whole the library and campus facilities were good, however the food was so expensive and my accommodation was not good. Even though I was given early acceptance I didn't get my first choice of halls, and the place I did live was run down and the fire alarm was set off by students every night so I was never able to get a good night of sleep. This really affected my mental health and my complaints to the University about this were not taken seriously as no action was taken to help me.

    • Overall, I had a fairly negative experience of university. I didn't feel supported and missed a lot of teaching hours due to strikes and the pandemic.

    • On the whole the area was good and had lots of events going on to attend, however the daytime campus life was not very exciting and at night the area sometimes felt dangerous with lots of fights happening on the streets.
