The Union building is good- gym, carfe, bar etc The Union shop could do with being bigger and more varied- student who live on campus dont have any means of buying anything later or last minute such as milk etc cafes and rectories are good but very expensive more areas to socialize would be good×

There are a lot of pubs and clubs but I think most of them play really similar music. Sometimes students from the commercial music course are playing at bars in town. Some popular student nights include Metal night, I think there's a 90s night, bump and grind..×

As the uni is fairly small, there are few facilities as that is all that is needed. For the courses that are offered, the facilities needed for them are of quite a high standard and the university tries to offer as much help and support as possible. The library has a wide range of books available as further reading for each of the courses run by the uni, including a CD/DVD library for subjects such as music and film studies (which can also be accessed by students on other courses- you can effectively rent DVDs for free!). There is also a journals library and online e-journals library which I have found very useful. There are a good number of computers and work spaces available throughout the campus, meaning I have always been able to find somewhere to work when I need to, and the self-service check-in/out for books and media means it's quick and easy to borrow and return whatever you need. As the university is primarily a creative university, facilities offered for science-based courses seem to be limited, such as biology and psychology labs.×
The Theater is technically better than I thought.Report

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.
