It is fairly easy to manage costs. The university food facilities are a little more expensive than expected but are readily available, and there are plenty of nearby cafes that are a relatively cheaper option. I personally have found it very hard to find part-time work. Buses are a lot cheaper at uni than in my home town. I wish I had known how small the area is; it was described as a city and in fact it's smaller with less options for jobs, shopping, eating out and entertainment than my home town.×

Certain aspects of course, such as doing a full year compulsory English literature based module with 2 hours contact time a week, when the course is creative writing. I can see why you would need a literature background but doing it for an entire year was tedious, especially when you had to obtain a B in an English A level to get on the course.×

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.
