Be you and all follows. Good university to start your abroad journey.
Tips: The course selection should be wise otherwise you cannot change once you pick up a course. Also, be aware of future jobs cause the rules state that we have to work in the same field as our course. Nothing apart from these. When you come here you will figure it out.
Likes (Public transportation): Transportation is really good apart from the regular strikes. Otherwise, it is better to take student accommodation so that the travel and expenses part is sorted. Either way, it is the same expense. So it didn’t really matter to me. I had opted for a student dorm.
Dislikes (Part time work): I haven't found a part-time yet. Help is given by the university as their career fairs are very specific to future jobs here. Also the part-time jobs are not relevant to your previous experience. We have to work on random things and struggle for a full time. Just like I am doing it

This university is the best for students.
Tips: The University is the best university for an international student. It provides help in every possible aspect to an international student who does not know how to deal with assignments. They even help getting a job when you are new to the country. This university is the best for students.
Likes (Post study jobs): Students are given every possible help, be it module related or in the library and also related to career. There are specific departments just to help students with examinations. Students also get free transport from one campus to another with shuttle service.
Dislikes (Safety): Very friendly faculty. The faculty are experienced in their respective fields and always share their experience and tips along with explaining the relevant topic during the lecture. The feedback given by them always helps to excel in examinations.
