Why did you choose to study in this college?

Business was my favorite subject in school so I picked a business course I liked

Are you happy with your choice of course?


On reflection, what made it the right or wrong choice for you?

I chose this course with the intention of going onto do a higher diploma and be a business teacher, however, I wasn't prepared for the economics and maths elements of the course, I really don't like them and as a result it's affecting my overall grade, meaning I probably won't get to use my degree for what I initially wanted.

I would definitely join a club or society in first year and actually go to it.

Do you or have you lived away from home during college?


How much does your rent cost per month?


As a first year did you live in college halls?


If yes, where and why?

Larkfield on campus. It's not the most appealing of accommodation but is without a doubt the best place to live in first year. Your surrounded by only other first years, you get to easily meet so many people and it's right on campus so your parents have no reason to worry for your safety. It's also a great way to get to know your campus.

How would you recommend this college to a friend?

Yeah, it's a small and friendly university! especially good spot if your into sport.
