food on campus is reasonably priced, although lunch can be a little expensive outside of the union bar. job opportunities ok for those living perminantly in Bournemouth, otherwise clubs and bars employ lots of students. there are addidtional course costs but often they can be avoided (by using library books instead of buying the more expensive ones for example) or subsidised if required.×

The amount of teaching decreases each year as you gain more confidence in working independently. Seminars can be a struggle as it really depends who is in your group. If people are confident and active in their learning they will be brilliant, if not then you will end up learning everything through lectures! The content is varied and some assignments are far more challenging than others. This is added to by the fact the tutors will warn you 'most people fail this'. It's not a great motivation when you hear this! Some people just give up and don't bother with those as much as they should. Very varied marking between tutors and disciplines it seems. There are all sorts of types of work from presentations, essays, plans, posters (yes, posters!) and inputting research. There is a lot fo group work which is very difficult. Feedback is not extensive and sometimes it was copied and pasted from somebody elses on my course. Not fantastic.×
This uni does an amazing job at teaching you and having a lot of facilities you need on campus.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.
