      Academic Experience

      I think that for the amount of money we have to pay per year, there is not a lot of teaching time per week and should be more, the course is fairy challenging as you would expect from a university course, but is still able to complete. The course i am on is ideal for me because it is all assignment based, which means i do not have to do any exams, so i can show my full potential and remain calm at all times, without the stress of having to revise and be put under timed pressure. The tutors and facilities are very good on my course and with all the help they have given me, i have received very good grades from my first year.

    • The downside

      The library needs to be open more (24 hours, as a lot of books cannot be taken out)

    • The downside

      Amount of media equipment available isn't always enough close to deadlines, edit room availability is low close to deadlines

      Everyday expenses

      The food/drink on campus is not badly priced & there is a decent range to pick and choose from - I manage costs by often providing my own from home. There are plenty of water fountains so re-filling bottles with good drinking water is a real money-saver. I have a part-time job on campus - the uni offers an employment service with regular email updates about many local student-friendly job opportunities during term time and holidays.

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.
