First year is the same as advanced higher, so I wasn't particularly challenged this year, but the lecturers still managed to make it interesting. The hardest part was probably practical labs, which I really struggled with because you had to write a report in a time limit, and I'm not very good at that. However, the rest was great. I particularly enjoyed programming labs, because it was the first time I learned programming.×
Catered food is o.k, standard, nothing great.Report
Accommodation is basic but being rebuilt.Report

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.
