What students say about this university

251 comments (65 students)
    • Some lectures are not very interesting or explore things in great depth, leading to brief bits of irrelevant knowledge that don’t benefit assessments. Aspects of the accommodation are not great and those who I have asked for help from have not been helpful

    • Campus is busy in the day which can be good. Night life is poor

    • The difficulty level of the course could vary depending on the lecturer and the design; I wouldn't recommend or not recommend any courses because it could not be fair.

    • The university is great, mainly because of the educational standard in LUMS. However, there has been some issues with the Student Union where it was felt like it hasn't been approachable to the international students.
