The friendly atmosphere.
The town and the university are well integrated and the friendly vibe never leaves the place.

Work ethic. You work hard and you get rewarded with the knowledge and skills to go on to your career.

There are some modules that will seem difficult but if you aren't afraid to ask for help and put in the work everything is achievable.

The Maths Support Center is brilliant and most lecturers will do all they can to host extra tutorials or hep you on a one-to-one if you go to them.
