      Everyday expenses

      It is quite easy to manage costs. There is relatively cheap food and drink available although it is cheaper to buy a meal deal from tesco! The bursary provided by the uni helps towards these costs. Travel costs are reasonable: 2.10 to uni and back from Gloucester. The nearest city for available work is Gloucester which isn't too bad.

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.
