Usually, the teaching contact time is around 10-13 hours per week. This involves lectures, seminars, tutorials and workshops. My course is extremely interesting and challaging, but in a positive sense. It gets out the best in you and reveals a lot of new things which allow you to think differently and see the world through some wise minds' eyes. It is even better than I thought when I came here. Usually, the assessment is based on essays and exams. However, from time to time some projects require specific research reports which make everything a lot more interesting. Equally, the feedback has helped me improved all throughout my course and it has offered me the chance to find out more about what i needed to do. Overall, my course is extremely valauble and the quality and the expertise of teaching is way above the average.×

students union bars are very cheap and nice, but rarely used, college bars are very good, numerous and very cheap. Sports facilities are good and have recently been updated. There are lots of uni cafes, especially on the science site, these are good, but slightly expensive.×

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.
