    • The downside

      Nightlife could be better. As well as the Uni being disorganised!

      Hughenden Halls are nice and clean and you have loads of room. However, they can get a bit lonely as you can only get into your side of the corridor. They can be quiet but there's also a party atmosphere but that isn't really noticed if you want a quiet life. The worst thing about hughenden is the laundry facilities, there are 3 washing machines and dryers for about 300 people, is ridiculous!! I didn't live in brooke street but when I first visited my initial thoughts were that it looked like a prison and members of the public can walk through the entrance, there are no gates.

      I am studying the new foundation degree in Policing, it is a very challenging degree juggling uni work and special hours with the police however it is managed well and we are provided with lots of support from the uni.

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.
