UWS is a great university to undertake new challenges and experience new things. The learning environment is great, with many different types of classes offered and a lot of practical and hands-on experiences. I have found all of the staff and other students to be very friendly, and staff are always willingly to give students extra time out of class for extra discussions. Many extra-curricular social gatherings are also offered, such as uni parties, which is great to meet new people. show less
