      Everyday expenses

      The food and drinks n the shops around campus are quite expensive so it would be more sensible to go in a bigger shop for example Sainsbury's, and it is only about 7 minutes from the campus. Opportunities for part-time work are not very good as it is almost impossible to find a part-time job due to the amount of students. If you live near the city centre you don't need transport as uni is in the city centre,, and most of the students prefer living in a walkable distance to uni.

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.
