Timetable is one of the main disappointments for me. The classes seem to be all over the place, somedays you don't even get a break just 4 hours or more of lectures/seminars. Other days, I have to travel in for 1 hour and then head home. It's not too bad if you actually want to stay in the library to do work.×
The halls are excellent for any new student, there's a real sense of unity and a excellent way to make friends.Report

The in-city buses are generally very good! (And much more reasonably priced than where I live at home.) I get a grant and don't have to buy much food (catered student) so I found it quite easy to manage costs, though if you're really into the party scene then you may find it harder to budget!×

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.
