The amount of teaching time we had per week was very limited, having only 8 hours in total in a whole week, this become less as the years go on and when I went into third year I only had 6 - this can make you feel like the value for money is not very sufficient but then again I know my course was very different to others and was based a lot on placements and independent study. The content of the course was excellent and I feel through being on the degree course I have managed to figure out my path in life and what I really want to do career wise. The amount of work is fair - we had approximately 3 pieces of work per module, usually an essay, a group project and a report. Our course is not very exam based and is vocational instead which was great for me. If you have the initiative to go and get it then the feedback from tutors is invaluable and very important to the progression of your studies. We didn't really have any course specific facilities apart from an office in our campus building which was used for the preparation of a third year module which involved extensive planning.×

It would be a 10 but I've been to better cities for nightlife. But there's so many different pubs, bars, nightclubs, cocktail and wine bars around. Bars that cater for LGBT+ and for sports teams. Rock lovers and RnB lovers. You name it they've got it.×

Although this may be too 'general', the tuition fees of 9000 are extremely high and in my opinion far overpriced for the amount of teaching and guidance that is actually given. I believe that students end up spending much less time in class or the university than they initially believe they will when going through the application/ucas process.×

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.
