Cranfield University Students Say...

Cranfield University "is located in a quiet village, creating a close community where most students live in houses and flats."

Cranfield University "is located in a quiet village, creating a close community where most students live in houses and flats." This isolated locale—"it takes 20 minutes to drive to the nearest supermarket"—means that students must rely on one another for entertainment. Fortunately, "there is no dearth of social events, which more than makes up for the school being in a bit of wilderness." Students tell us, "There are many social activities and opportunities to network with other business schools, such as Oxford, London Business School, Cambridge, and others [as well as tons of] clubs for different sports activities like badminton, basketball, cricket, football, motor sports, scuba diving, sailing, or rugby and others for dancing, jujitsu, or yoga."

Students especially appreciate Cranfield's family-friendly atmosphere, telling us that extracurricular activities "are inclusive of the diverse student population, partners, and families." One MBA notes, "My wife enjoys socializing with other partners, attending the dancing club, and other sports activities such as touch rugby and badminton. My two kids enjoy playing in the safe school playground. They also enjoy [the] various activities arranged by school or student clubs."

There are drawbacks to Cranfield's remote location, of course. Students warn, "You need a car, as public transport in rural England is not great." They also complain that "there are very few options to eat on campus and very little access to options off-campus. Restaurants on campus are closed by 7:30 P.M., further reducing the options for hard-working students."

Cranfield's diverse student body is "a real eye-opener that helps us understand different viewpoints," MBAs tell us, as well as an excellent source of food and entertainment. One student reports, "We recently had international week, with presentations and food given by students from over 10 countries. Our Diwali festival celebration was attended by over 350 people—and there are only 136 students on the course!" Students interact constantly due to the curricular emphasis on teamwork; every term, students "are split into teams consisting of six or seven persons, all mostly of different nationalities."
