Pros

Great very pretty small town - good facilities for kids. Reasonable emphasis on research and bureaucrats can be mostly avoided!

Cons

The organisation is a bit centralised with edicts coming from the centre. Remedial classes required for incoming students but this is true for the whole UK now. A bit too much focus on the "student experience".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My main advice would be to let the experts you hire be expert. Also often the University only tries (and fails) to retain the best people once they have job offers from elsewhere - try harder to retain people before they feel they even need to look elsewhere.

    Pros

    Good working environment, student centred environment. Building work currently taking place to modernise large sections of the campus, which improves the environment.

    Cons

    Lots of building work currently taking place, which leads to disruption of various parts of the campus and makes moving around difficult at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is good that the environment is being improved, which will enhance the student experience. More parking spaces would be good.
