I was good with managing my money try and buy what you need for food, try to limit the drinking maybe at first you will go a bit wild or something but after a certain time then limit it down to a try times a week or a month, part time work can be hard with a lot of work at university to be done, for university resources get the best of the best and then it will last rather than little not good resources where you would have kept replacing them.×

Try not to buy brands and buy sainsburys basics or own brand. Try not to buy too many clothes or buy unnecessary purchases. When going out for the evening to a club try not to buy many drinks whilst at the club.×

The lecturers are not that good - They are more concerned about their research than the students. they tend to favour the students who they know personally. The technology introduced in uni is more advance than they can handle - for example if you went to the library most of the computers would not be working and if you look at the IT engineers they would be sitting at their desks listening to their ipods instead of doing something about repairing the computers.×

We had high quality teaching. Many times in uni 4-5 days a week with the first year having two full 9am-6pm days but this reduces by third year but with more time with individual tutor time. The course is very intresting with many modules to suit all area intrests. Really enjoyed dryland geomorphology and hazards. There is equal split of exams and coursework mixed in with practicals and fieldwork. By third year you can pick modules with no exams or no coursework to suit your learning style. Feedback from tutors tends to be returned quickly and there are very good to connect via email. Some will even spend a few hours talking and getting to know each student.×

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.
