    • The downside

      Feedback on work - both in terms of rapidity and depth. Student union - usually deserted. Needs more societies/clubs.

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.
