      In terms of transportation, the university has its transport service which conveys students from the campus to Ormskirk town. There are also local transportation and a railway station. There are not too many part time jobs for foreigners i must say.

      Everyday expenses

      Public transport is expensive in ormskirk. If you commute by train get a pass. It is easy to live off a budget in February I managed to live off 50 for food and drink. There's an Aldi and Morrisons do a good value range. Part time work is possible, just ask around, the uni are good at publicising work opportunities and being close(ish) to Liverpool is a big advantage for part time work.

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.
