Insider tips about what future students should not miss
You must find interesting the fact that Portsmouth is really convenient to reach from Gatwick Airport, and it is also not so expensive (about 15 pounds). There are also a lot of interesting activities to do and also at the university's facilities.

If you like sports, take clothes with you (e.g. football shoes).

I think some good advice for students who want to take 1-to-1 tuition is to think about at which time of day they want to do it. Note: 1-to-1 is the "hardest" type of class with the best possibility of improving your language skills. So try to get 1-to-1 tuition in the morning!
