I would prefer more hours of teaching as a lot of the work in my course is left to be self taught from textbooks, I think longer, but less intense lectures / workshops would be more effective×

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.
