We have seminars and lectures each week for your course(s). They vary on quality. Sometimes I feel like I learn loads, other days I feel like I learn nothing. The online programme, Minerva, is awful and difficult to navigate at first but you have to learn how to use it or you cannot access your lecture notes etc. I feel the work load here is too much. Courses can be quite selfish, they don't care if you have an exam for another course tomorrow, they want the work done or you're penalised. Feedback really depends on your tutor. Personally all the feedback I've received is terrible. Publishing has brilliant facilities, we have access to Macs along with all the programmes on them. Creative Writing only requires you to have Microsoft Word and a load of money to buy books.×

There are over 100 different societies. The sports section has some range of sports. Cheerleading is one of the biggest societies and compete each year at the BCA - university british cheerleading association. At the end of the academic year, there is a ball for sports members where you can win trophies for best team etc.×
Variation of clubs and societies to join.Report
Lots of support with tutors, contact hours should be more.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.
