      There is only one real club in ormskirk that isn't the su bar. And everything closes and 2am. Rubbish for nightlife

      Nightlife

      I started looking just a few weeks into my first semester, and it was a huge mistake. We ended up panic-signing for a house, got an awful house and are paying more than it's worth. I would advise waiting until March/April time to look for a house, as a second housing list is usually released and tends to have better options on than the first.

      Creative scene

      Although I don't fully participate in any of these personally, there is a diverse range of societies including a Harry Potter society. There are always events organised for new students by the university, which other students can join in as well - these are great!

    • The downside

      The link bus to the ormskirk bus station was reducedcfrom every 15 minutes to every 20. This is a bit of a hindrance.

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.
