Due to Brexit, the university no longer offers support for abroad placements to SMDE students, however, they do in other Universities and in other courses at Portsmouth, so we ask that we get the same support as other courses in abroad placements.

Being a student we’ve all had our fair share of nights out, going to bars around Portsmouth is fun, but it’s not the same as a union bar. Having friends in other unis I’ve seen union bars, the atmosphere is unmatched. Being a first year in a new city, going out is daunting, independent pubs don’t feel as safe and secure and with spicing being something we are all worried about. A union bar creates a level of security, knowing that it’s just students, that have the same worries, we also have dedicated campus security that has consistent training unlike other pubs and bars around Portsmouth. Finally, being a first year I’ve always felt worried meeting new people, a student bar creates a safe space to meet new people, in a student focused environment that doesn’t break the bank!

Creative Cloud is no longer free to use for design students meaning we cannot access the necessary software at home and on our own devices. Although the university suites have the software available it limits the amount of productivity that can be achieved and feels like £65 a year is very steep considering we already pay thousands in yearly fees. It was available last year and gives students the opportunity to study and develop outside of the lectures.

Due to their desire to cut costs the University of Portsmouth is currently in consultation to close their Nursery with the decision being made on the 5th September. Without this facility, staff and student parents will suffer a huge blow to their University experience while having, or caring for, a child.

Darts is easily one of the most popular sports in the UK, and is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. Anybody is able to pick up a dart, and throw it, regardless of body composition, age, or gender. By creating a darts society at the university, we hope this will encourage more people to take up this great sport, at all levels.
