  • Great university with great people and a very good vibe. The campus is also located in the city center so it's very convenient. A beautiful city to study in.
  • I'm having MSc IBEM program right now. University not only stands out itself but also students in here are absolutely brilliant and friendly. Just love it!!
  • I worked at this university for nine years and eight months until April 2016. At first when I started working here I was as proud as I could have been working at one of the top universities within the UK. However, as time progressed it became absolutely hell to work for this institution. I worked within Central Biological Services within the corporate services. I was an animal research technician, it was my job to look after the animals that were having research done on them. Throughout my time working here I saw many things that should not have happened, including animals being glued to the side of their cage after having their tails cut off, animals not being given food or water for days and almost dying, animals being put into airtight spaces after having major surgery and forgotten about for more than 48hrs and many other things. Having brought some of these situations to managements attention I was threatened with the prospect of loosing my job. After finding some rats with no food and water and in a very sick condition in March 2016 and this being covered up and myself being bullied to keep quiet about it I decided to resign in April 2016. Subsequently the university did an investigation into this after I had left which was a complete whitewash which I in turn then dissected and found that the staff who were interviewed were infact asked loaded questions. This investigation was such a farce that the university then employed an independent QC to investigate, they have as yet declined to share this report with me. I know that in this report other staff have came forward and told of their own distressing situations- including one member of staff being stabbed in the hand with a pair of scissors and being bullied into not reporting it by his manager. There is at least two members of staff that have been so distressed by their employment with this institution that they have came close to committing suicide and are now on very strong anti-depressants - myself being one of them. In my view- this university is more about making money and power, rather than looking after its staff or the animals it does research on.
  • Any university willing to investigate a student for mocking a terrorist organisation, is best avoided. This university seems to think that belittling evil, brainwashed discriminate hate filled nutcases is a HATE crime!! Whoever you are at this university leading this investigation, you are obviously short of work. Please find some real work to do, and GROW UP!!!
  • I am a new student in this university. I need somebody to guide me regarding their online Surgical subject courses(ChM Trauma and Orthopaedics, General Surgery, Urology, etc.). Are the students supported well by the faculty and supervisors online? Do these courses help in getting training posts in the subject in UK or anywhere else?
