It is easy to manage your costs if you divide your termly amount of money by weeks and try not to spend more than that. There are opportunities for part-time work but there are many students within Canterbury and so there is quite a bit of competition. There are many supermarkets around the city so buying food weekly will be better value than buying from the food courts and restaurants every day but they are still good value for money if eating out. Some of the pubs are cheaper for drinks than on campus but there are many pubs and clubs that are more expensive for drinks. There is rarely a need to use public transport as everywhere is within a half hour walk even to the other side of the main part of the city.×

There are many different pubs around the town, most of which are happy to let students in. THere are 3-4 clubs in Canterbury. Club Chemistry provide popular student nigths and discounts at least twice a week. Chill nightclub also throws different nights including Glitterbomb which is a gay night.×

The university owned houses were clean, well kept and the white goods i.e laundry machine and oven were in great working condition. Heating was awkward sometimes due to different and sometimes confusing mechanisms to control the heat, but when one radiator stopped working the maintenance team was quick and efficient to fix the problem. Room size was great and most furniture was durable albeit basic. Having cleaning staff help with maintaining the common rooms was great and helped ease the transition from living in home, to living independently.×

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.
