      The upside

      My lecturers and instructors - they are very passionate about what they teach and therefore it's easier to pick up enthusiasm for your subjects, and especially with the instructors they are always there and always available. Lecturers are so as well, but they might not be in their office all the time.

    • The downside

      Some lecturers not up to the job, and some are outright rude and don't seem to care one ounce about the students.

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.
