I study environmental geoscience. My course has quite a lot of contact/teaching hours - around 18 a week. This can be quite a lot, but comparing it to my friend who only has two a week, it's better than sitting at home and being bored! The course content is very interesting and I have learnt an awful lot this year and even remember most of it. As an environmental geoscientist, I did find there was rather too much geology, but by the end of the year I realised it wasn't that bad and there's no more geology in the second year.×

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.
