      The library is extremely well stocked and useful. It has a good system to take out and return books. It has very good opening times but is situated a short walk from the campus.

      Everyday expenses

      I live nearby so don't have to pay for travel however I know that there are good bus routes to right outside the campus. There are many shops and supermarkets within walking distance of the campus and so availability of food is fine. Textbooks will need to be bought whilst undertaking the course so this will be an additional cost. Most of the students on my course have found part time work easily whether it be in their field of work or simply in retail to provide them with some income.

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.
