As a third year i currently have 3 hours of lectures a week and 4 hours of labs. I spend a large amount of time doing independent work around 25 hours a week. ICT course content is varied with modules changing every year, some being quite practical and others written. The ICT tutors and lecturers have all mainly been great, this year in particular my teachers have been outstanding We have access to a wide range of cisco devices such as switches and routers, dual screen PCs and virtual machines, which allows us to wire and play around with networks without creating any vital errors×

Food is reasonable, but drinks are quite expensive on the campus. There is a subway next door at Aston University which all students can use, and a range of cafes and shops near the university. The town centre - which provides hundreds of job opportunities - is just a short walk away. Transport is good and affordable, and being in Birmingham makes it east to travel to all areas of the country/world via. train, plane, bus, car etc.×
They have facilities, but you're f****d if you want to use them because 200 other people want to at the same timeReport

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.
