      The library is definitely your friend. I wished I'd figured that out before my last paper. The staff are helpful and will always help you find what you are looking for- but get in early for assignments because all the good books not from 1961 will be taken out. Don't be afraid to go out for clubs! But be aware there is usually an expensive joining fee. For cheer this year, the membership fee was 30 pounds but is even going up next year. Definitely get a wristband for freshers week. You'll be spending waaaay more than necessary without it.

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.
