      Everyday expenses

      Wrexham is an area that has had more than it's fair share of umemployment issues. Having been built originally on farming, mining and steel production the death of the last two and diminshing of the former has left it struggling to cope with the knock on effects. It has led to a very 'down to earth' attitude by local employers and retailers. Costs are reflected in what local people are able or willing to pay. It has no false sense of self. Managing costs here is probably easier than in many many other places.

      The downside

      Little local social scene and nightlife for younger students. I doesn't effect me but many student have been disappointed with the lack of social scene. Wrexham is not really student orientated; however the Student Union works hard to offer a variety of on site social events.

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.
