Juggling a family on this course is hard but it's doable. Another thing to highlight is you may be entitled to a bursary but not childcare costs as this will also cause financial strain! University blocks are around 3 days/ week in Uni but half terms have seemed busier times than most. Aside from taught sessions there is a lot of work to be completed at home so you should arrange childcare for at least four days so that you have time to complete it during the week. We have had great support this year from tutors - they really want people to succeed & the teaching quality is very good.×

The cafeteria is quite big and has some good food but does not have a good layout. It can be quite noisy at times. There are not really any quiet areas outside where you can sit or eat with friends. The shop on the campus is quite expensive but does stock lots of different things. Sports facilities on campus are very good, the gym has lots of equipment.×

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.
