The amount of teaching each week is good and manageable and the content is often very good however sometimes the tutor does not engage the class in the topic very well. The overall content of the course is very interesting and varied. It can be challenging but I feel we get good support from the teaching staff on how to handle the work. There are plenty of opportunities for exams and course work but very little practical work except in the first term. I would appreciate more opportunities for practicals during teaching time. The feedback is not always available when you need it, you have to go chasing the tutor and I think that the should give feedback at every available opportunity. The course specific facilities have undergone extensive refurbishment during the first year of study. The new facilities are excellent and you feel encouraged to spend time in the brand new library and study areas.×

As a nursing student its quite difficult to feel part of the whole Uni "experience". The social activies are not geared towards us - the freshers week started a fortnight after we had started our course so we were already in lectures and the end of summer events took place in May while we do not finish our academic year until August. Nursing students spend a vast amount of time at the West Smithfield site which has one small common room which consists of tables, chairs and a vending machine. It would be good if they offered us a larger common room.×
The refectory and other catering establishments are average and not particularly well-priced.Report

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.
