"You can never get tired of it! The campuses are huge, so every time you take a walk you discover new places and learn new facts about your university. The university and the Students’ Union provide a lot of opportunities to meet like-minded people, to enhance your skills and to try different things out. You can get involved in so many things I cannot list them all: societies, sports, open days, student-run projects, marketing for uni, peer-mentoring schemes, volunteering – those are just a few from the top of my head."
