      The upside

      The teaching staff have been very good and are very friendly and willing to help as much as they can. The teaching staff makes up the Law Course.

      Facilities

      Our main social life is all based around the student union, however, this works to our advantage as we are ale t meet friends there during the day for either a drink or something to eat or can simply lunge around on the sofas without buying anything. There are other bars such as oneils and the snug bar. There are also two large parks on London road and at hughendon where almost all students go when the weather is nice!

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.
