Even though the notion is sad, everyone knows that universities are still businesses and that their aim is to make money. You'd think that their second aim is to educate the next generation, but no. Their second aim is to not lose money.I'm not sure how far down 'educating' is on their list of priorities, and I dislike to group together all the good and helpful tutors and lecturers out there, but the costs of being at university... are just not really worth it. You want an education? Teach yourself while you have a part time job and enjoy the world. Plus the food on campus is awful and very expensive.If you are however set on going to Uni, I recommend shopping at places like Aldi and Lidl, where veg, bread, milk etc and all other necessities are relatively cheap. DON'T BUY NEW CLOTHES. If you want new clothes, trust me - go to CHARITY shops.×

Very good for library facilities and library staff are very helpful. Should stop people using social networks when other students want to use the pc's for coursework.×

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.
