My degree is in economics and finance and accounting. I found that the degree was challenging at first but the professors are very helpful and they usually are prepared to you a lot of time to help you with any questions.
The university is very diverse (one of the most in the uk). Most people are very friendly and through and events and societies you can meet a lot of people.
Everything in worth visiting in the city is in walking distance and transportation there is extremely good.
The nightlife in the city is not that great as there are only a few places to visit. Most of the residents in the city are students. All in all, I think it is one of the best places in the uk to live.
