      Everyday expenses

      Whilst the food within the campus is pricey, you are at liberty to utilise the college facilities which is better value for money, and the food is quite good. I chose this university as I am a mature student with children. The university is close to my home and suits my needs. However, you need to be aware that the university is small with limited courses. You will also find that module choice is limited, sometimes we do not get a choice of which modules to study, and are congruent upon what our lecturers can teach.

      Academic Experience

      The amount of teaching is perfect although we could maybe do with more individual or small group meetings to fully understand around the subject. The content of the course is very diverse and interesting where in year 1 and 2 you cover all areas until you choose where to specialise in. The assignments are pointed out at the beginning of the term giving you enough time to think over what you're going to research. The facilities in the music block are amazing with lots of practise rooms with pianos, a band room with plenty amps, an electronic drums kits room not to mention the recital hall and mum ford theatre along with other electronic facilities from the office.

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.
