Harper Adams University (HAU) provides the best campus experience for students in the United Kingdom. The institution got the top spot against 120 universities according to over 15,000 student respondents. "It is great to see our students rate the university so highly and coming first is a fantastic result," Vice-Chancellor David Llewellyn said in earlier interviews.

HAU ranked first on "good community atmosphere" in the Times Higher Education student experience survey. It also landed third on "good social life", following Newcastle University and the University of Leeds. Moreover, it got the fourth place for "high-quality staff and lectures", which was dominated by the University of Oxford, Cambridge, and St. Andrews.

Another second place was awarded to the Harper institution for "helpful and interesting staff." Well, Oxford also got the top spot for this category. On the other hand, HAU also ranked in high "quality of teaching" and good "campus facilities".

Llewellyn further stressed that while they give their students an "outstanding" academic journey, these young minds are regularly prompted to be socially active as well. "We work closely with our student community on their social life and extracurricular activities," the official added. For the record, per FG Insight, professors encourage their students to think about innovations for the UK farming system too.

Future of campus life

The inevitable rise of online classes could end the era of physical universities. Thus, in order to catch up, schools will soon offer high-tech AI (artificial intelligence) teachers. If it pushes through, the project will permit the historic partnership between academic robots and human professors.

Simply put, if these AI's already know how to drive cars, then it should learn how to word-process as well. However, the incorporation of robots may actually replace the human teachers in the long run. Additionally, school lawyers, accountants, and other employees would also disappear.

Lastly, a "smart campus" is already being planned. The next campus designs may sport LED lights for a "flashy" future. In relation to this, sensors are being developed to track whether classroom are empty or not. They can also detect how many people are attending in a particular lecture.
