Attraction details

The uni is fab and in an excellent location, it's directly across from Buchanan bus station, a 5 minute walk from queen street station and a ten minute walk from central station.

There are lots of cafes on site, about 1 in every building. They are pretty cheap and offer a wide range of foods and drinks throughout the day. The food is good and worth going to, saves a lot of hassle with breakfast/lunch etc, and relatively healthy(if you pick the right things).

There are lots of areas to study including the 24hour computer lab and 5 floors of a library, the top floor being completely silent and with no computers. The staff on the bottom level are lovely and can help with everything,

Classes are fair size, but modernity equipped so learnings fun, and everyone can see what's on the screens etc.

Lecturers and tutors go out of their way to help you and there are a wide range of courses that you can study.

Also the book shop on site is the cheapest place for stationery and good quality stationery at that, but not always for books though so check amazon first!

Enjoyed my time here as a mature student and found the course interesting. I would recommend return to study to anyone who wants to change direction. I had be made redundant and found the challenge of going back into education stimulating, interesting and it made it easier to find work.

Although buildings seem modern and nice from exterior, but I didn't see anything special inside. A good thing is that all the buildings of uni are in one place, so students do not need to travel. But that shouldn't be the main benefit of uni
