Down the Holloway Road in London England is a university. I had been driving down this road for 15 years beforehand, and I had not noticed the University until I decided to apply to go there during my access to university course. As I was living close by in Central London, it seemed ideal, even though I had never noticed it. An automatic acceptance was good enough for me; I was going there!
Another student on my access course went there and she is now a teacher. It was looked down on by some students. I had no idea why at the time. One wanted to go to Kings and was put out by how snooty they were there at her interview. The pot calling the kettle back comes to mind.
I found out why it was rated so low by the snooty. It was full of foreigners and local people, and there were also a very high percentage of mature students.
The courses marked by Oxford University, so empirical pragmatism is the only thing wanted. The teachers are all busy, and an appointment is needed to speak to one. My Tutor was such a busy man it was difficult to see him. His feedback, although small was invaluable in helping me complete my dissertation on whether 'Free Will was Compatible with the truth of determinism'.
I left there six years ago now. Only go to university if you're generally interested in nihilism, as vacuousness it is promoted.
Back to the buildings a new post modern frontage is surprising. As the metaphysical scientific world view is what is promoted; expect homelessness, barbarity and mass consumption to be the result.
The local area is a run down, and there are loads of criminals and prostitutes, owners of kebab shops and people selling fags on every street corner.
So overall, the University manipulated me; it is what they are paid to do, you can not blame them. The promotion of vacuousness is expensive however, as it cost me £11000 pounds in student loans and bank overdrafts for them to try to manipulate me into being ordinary, and liking averageness it was all a failure.
