Excellent C suite facilities and programme.
Tips: Students should maximum try to get good scholarships, as most of the universities here provide decent scholarships. Also, it would be better to take the majority of cooking stuff and spices before coming here, as these are a little bit costly here. Better try not to spend too much once you reach here, as this will exhaust you.
Likes (Safety): Safety is so important here and you can travel at anytime as per your convenience. The security which we get in the UK is extremely good. Especially in the university area, there are security vans which used to travel in late hours. They ensure the safety of the students and faculty members.
Dislikes (Indian Food): I mostly prefer Indian food and here we get it so scarcely. Mostly western and Chinese foods are seen. This is mostly because the university is in the outskirts of London area, where Indians are comparatively less. I prefer cooking rather than eating outside. It would be better to bring some ready-to-cook items for the initial days.

A good value for money and a great place.
Tips: Before joining the student must know all the required modules. They need to study before the course starts and know how to apply for scholarships because getting it is not a big task. I am highly satisfied with the country as well as the university along with students, the place is fun.
Likes (Post study jobs): Post study jobs are hard to find as very less companies sponsor you. Even after PSW it's difficult to get a job out here. But the packages are good and even the roles are good. Jobs are for software engineers and senior software engineers as well. All good roles are available you just need to find them.
Dislikes (Internships): Not many internships are available for the students. As it's just a one-year course and the schedule is really very hectic and it doesn't allow much time to apply for them. Internships are there but you need to search them thoroughly. Guidance will be given by the college to apply.

PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
Try to build networks with people in your field.
Tips: The place is dull and dark and becomes lonely when no one is around. The university is stressful but hard work can help you steer your ship. The university has one of the best e-resources in the whole UK. You can take its help to overcome difficulties you face in your academic journey.
Likes (Indian Food): There are many good places to eat when it comes to native food cusines. I preferred eating outside, especially chaiwallas and the Rio's. There are restaurants run by people of sub-continental origin that make good and affordable food. There are Indian and Pakistani stores that sell groceries that help you cook food you are used to.
Dislikes (Internships): There are not many internships offered by the university but one can on his own go on a venture to find something relevant to his field. The main thing is that networking helps you get good opportunities and makes life easier for you. There is a great chance of success if only you put in sheer hard work and try to stay ahead.

Getting a permanent job is difficult. Research is required for this course.
Tips: The one thing that students must keep in their mind is that, please equip yourself with some work experience because the course is practical and you will get the advantage. It will be easier for you to get a decent job or internship. I hope this will help. Research well about your course structure as well.
Likes (Part time work): There are many part time job opportunities in the city. You can easily find a job using website like totaljobs, linkedin etc. I had many friends who used to work part-time in places like Subways, Primark, McDonald etc. I guess finding a job with Tier 2 is quite hard but not part time job.
Dislikes (Permanent Immigration): I rated low on Permanent Immigration cause after the completion of masters everyone looks for a job which provides the Tier 2 Visa or Skilled Worker Visa but there is huge competition for those jobs. The economy crashing and the growth of Artificial Intelligence is also killing jobs.

Decent college for business
Tips: I am highly satisfied with the university and really looking forward to start a career now. The course and everything are really satisfying and this country I can't say is comfortable but yes has a bad climate and no sunlight at all. But people are fine.
Likes (Post study jobs): There are ample amount of companies available for post study work visa but still getting a job is not that easy. You really have to put your foot forward to get a decent paying job without any hustle. The jobs are related to our roles and business analytics has a great scope.
Dislikes (Internships): Not much guidance is there when it comes to applying for internships. Also for postgraduate student there is lack of opportunities available when it comes to internships because of the working hours being less during the term time. With that said it's not an impossible task though to get an internship.
