      Accommodation

      Initially I was in halls but started lookin early November with housemates to find a house in the local area that suited us all. It was fairly easy although they are all very expensive and we were not fully aware of the bad private student rentals in comparison to the good. It's without a doubt important to look early for accommodation

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.
