I found it very difficult to manage as I could not get a job while living at Glyndwr, I applied for many shop assistant positions but have no previous experience and never had a reply. (I am a qualified Beauty Therapy Lecturer) I applied to local spas and salons but again never received a reply. I only had my student finance to live on. Paying for halls, food and journeys home left me with no money what so ever to buy extras for my course. The one canteen in the main building was reasonably priced but our class never had time to walk across to the building to eat so had to use the canteen in our block which had very little choice and was quite expensive. I took soup during winter and salad when the weather improved as it was cheaper that way. Next to the uni is Aldies and this is the cheapest way to shop, highly recommended.×

Don't spend as much on takeaways unless the student also have a part time job somewhere around the area. The accommodations are really expensive unless they know the area pretty well so they can literally find other accommodations that are cheaper.×
Food is resonably pricedReport

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.
