All the sports clubs they have in the union. There are so many and offer places to those interested in competing but also taking part socially too. There are departmental teams too for netball and rugby etc.×

There are a lot of contact hours each week, with lectures, two 3 hour lab sessions as well as workshops and tutorial groups. Course content is interesting, some of the course draws on things from A-level making it easier to understand but other parts are more challenging and take more effort to make sense of, but the lecturers are very involved and willing to help if there is something you don't understand. A tutorial made up of a set of questions relating to a certain module of the course must be completed each week. There are two lab sessions each week and a write up must be handed in after each practical. Workshops are given out occasionally and there is a two hour exam at the end of the year for each module.×

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.
