      Everyday expenses

      it is important to be able to manage costs. But it is really worth getting a part time job especially when your student finance is not enough. There are a range of supermarkets near the university here you can purchase good quality food from different stores. Especially for international students who might like a range of meals. There are Chinese restaurants, Caribbean shops and lot of clubs. The environment is really friendly and makes it easier for students to cope. Transport costs is very reasonable and most of the time you can just buy a bike and you will be fine or you can just walk because usually the roads are linked to each other and there are lots of short cuts.

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
