If you are in 2nd,3rd,4th year you will most likely be with 1st years in your flat as all of first years are guaranteed accommodation therefore you might find it a little difficult to study if your 1st year flatmates are going out etc. However security are very good and will get involved if the noise levels get too high.Every single room has its own en-suite which is brilliant and the university also has rooms specially designed for those with disabilities. This includes a much larger room and a very large bathroom with easy access.×

really good. the university itself is like a small community so everything in on a miniture scale compared to other universities which i think makes it easier to settle in. the library is young, funky, colourful and resourceful. group study area on the group floor and quiet study on the top floor allow it to suit all learners. the lab are in good condition and posses all the equipment required. the technicians are also very helpful during practical sessions. the building are genreally in good condition and currently being updated. in all great resoures.×

Amount of time spent in lectures. The course told me i would get about 20 hours of lectures a week when the reality is that i only get half of that and the rest of the time is spent in labs or tutorials. don't let the prospectus mislead you and ask questions at open days to make sure the course is what you think it is.×
There is lots of good cheap food around. The accommodation is not that cheap, thoughReport
Support for placements and part time jobs Campus is greatReport

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.
