Student Profile

Nora May Engeseth

(BA International Politics)

The location, the course itself, feeling like home, being able to live at the seafront, and the affordability of the course compared to other universities in Britain, while maintaining the same quality of teaching, were all factors that influenced my decision to come here. It was clearly a good decision, as I have loved every second of it!
