      There's always something going on. We have our student nights on Thursdays, each week is a different theme. There's karaoke, themed nights in the student bar, all sorts.

    • The downside

      The organisation of the uni is poor, everything is very relaxed and when you want something doing it can be frustrating.

      Everyday expenses

      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.

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.
