City University is quite expensive. Food in the University canteen and pub is ok, but I think it costs a bit too much, between 4 and 7 pounds..of course it depends on the single selling points, but paying a mere salad 4 pounds I think it is crazy. The University offers some accommodations through some private agencies, and this makes prices reach the sky. The area is really nice, but this means it is impossible to find anything decent and cheap: you are obliged to look out of the area and take the tube or the bus. Transport costs are medium, I mean, we are in London! In any case there is a good transport connection with the main campus, with lots of buses and the Northern Line getting near the University. For what concerns part-time work, the good thing is that you can work for the student union if you want to. However I don't think it is really easy to find a work always because the area is really nice, quite and more residential than anything else.×

Cost of transport and food is generally more expensive. Plus City is a University that is increasing its course prices. Part time work isn't very easy to find either. However obviously it is located in the City so I knew everything will be expensive×

I had a very good first year doing child nursing. I was mainly of the year going in twice a week tp uni and the rest was supposed to be self directed learning. I have also had 12 week placements at the end which have been very enjoyable and have learnt alot. I am being assessed on the placement with a potfolio.×

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.
