Student reviews of universities on Studyportals' websites

Imperial College London

“I love my time studying at Imperial. Everyone I meet, students or staff, are all incredibly passionate, whether it is about their studies or a cause. Being one of the most international universities in the world (50%+ International students in undergraduate studies), I get to meet people from all backgrounds and see how their passion for science has brought them together.”

Royal Holloway, University of London

“I thoroughly enjoyed studying here. The lectures and seminars were, for the most part, well-structured and engaging, the lecturers friendly and always willing to answer any questions you may have. The new library is a massive plus too.”

SOAS University of London

“I really enjoyed studying with people from all over the world, coming from different educational backgrounds. The course is challenging but interesting, and the atmosphere at the uni is very relaxed and open-minded.”

Goldsmiths, University of London

“I enjoyed the experience of living in London, a thriving city, with much to explore. The course was well thought out, with a focus on stats which came in very useful for the third-year project. The lecturers, in general, were very engaging, and there was a lot of emphasis on individual learning and unique thought, which developed my ability for critical thinking.”
