      Accommodation

      The rooms for accommodation are excellent and so is the location. many perks such as free WIFI for every room is also good. However the rooms are costly and some are quite a distance away from the university.

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.
