Overall Rating

Winchester has been incredible, it has taught me lots about myself and I have met some of my best friends. The university has been so welcoming it immediately felt like home, and the community at Winchester is amazing.

Student Union

It is a good student union, but it shuts too early and is aimed at undergraduates. Postgrads fall by the way side.

Clubs and Societies


Uni Facilities

Facilities are built for purpose. They have what I need. However, the postgraduate research student room in the library is not available to postgraduate students, which seems like a major oversight.

Course and Lecturers

Most: lecturers take on board student comments/criticisms well and adapt immediately, accordingly, and appropriately.
Least: large lecture/seminar rooms are impersonal and ineffective.

City Life

The city is beautiful, welcoming, and full of dogs. The independent shops give Winchester more character than most big-cities, and the history allows for a wonderful place to life. It could be deemed quiet by those that like clubbing, but if you're more into pubs, food, coffee, and especially brunch, then Winchester is the place to live.

Job Prospects

Careers presented an introductory talk, offering help with CVs/Volunteering/work experience etc.
Given the opportunity to take part in extracurricular activities such as student academic representative, publishing papers in peer journals etc.

Student Support

The support is absolutely incredible and cannot be faulted. I always felt supported, heard, and understood.
