The course content, I study geography and it has been quite engaging, never really get bored in lectures. It is still kept simple though so I have found it easier in some places than others but it has been great at allowing students to adjust to university.The campus has also been fantastic, such a welcoming place to live.×

Personally, I think the teaching can be varied to who you have, like you get everywhere else. I am a drama student and there is a few teachers in general who are very very good at what they do and one or two, you just have to get on with. I generally get 10 hours of teaching as I'm on a joint course with Creative Writing. It's hard at first because you feel your neither here nor there having a few friends that cross both subjects. The facilities are great 2 massive theatres and many rehearsal spaces. I've had to do several different essays, one I've even enjoyed...feedback is detailed though in my situation, I haven't had 'official' assessment feedback yet. But, NO EXAMS, which personally I really struggled with at A Level.×
My accommodation is one of the nicest, as you have your own bathroom and enough space to live in alongside the 5 other peopleReport

Uni is expensive and you're gunna need money off your parents basically. I receive the most amount of maintenance loans and grants to I'm given a large amount of money by the government and I have a 2000 overdraft but it's still not enough to live off. The price of rent is ridiculous and once you pay that your are basically back to zero. Living off pasta and noddles is a reality, there's no way you can be getting nice, fresh food it's just too much money. There's little money for spending, as someone who doesn't go out drinking I don't spend money on that but even if I wanted to I couldn't. It's awful having to ask your parents for money when you should be able to provide for yourself with the grants but no way.×

Cost hasn't been a problem for me in my first year, I have been in catered accommodation which has benefitted me financially but also been difficult despite there being a lot of choice there isn't particularly a healthy option readily available. I managed to get myself a part-time job in near-by Liverpool but I was lucky to get this. Those who apply earlier generally get the work. The price of going out is fairly cheap though, you can easily do a night out on 10 when you have to!×

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.
