The student union does organize a lot of events such as parties and allows rooms to be rented by other societies. I think the problem with our union is that students are not very aware of the activities taking place in the union.×
on campus shop can be expensive.Report
There is a creative scene at the Uni however it is not a large one as the Uni is mainly a science and business school.Report

The amount of teaching is as expected, it's quite average, but I would rather have more interactive learning than lectures.At the moment my course isn't very specific to my degree title, it's challenging but I don't find it particularly interesting.I am assessed with essays, webtests, practicals and end of semester exams.Limited feedback from tutors, if any at all.Labs are fairly modern, but more computers should be available specifically for SLS students.×

Student support and disability service is awesome. There is nothing the staff there wont help you out with. It is really easy to get between classes. As all the buildings are connected this is extra helpful when its snowing or raining - typical scottish weather. There are soo many different places to eat on campus, no matter your budger, appetite or taste there is always something for you. Our wireless service is exceptional you have always been able to get really good connectivity whereever you are on campus - we are connecting to a new server this academic year however so this might change. Our annual beer festival is a must. The atmosphere is fantastic - i dont even like beer/cider but i still have fun every year! Parking on campus is really easy, you can even get a car park pass from your academic building so you dont have to park in the visitor car parks which are a bit of a walk away. If you dont drive the bus connections are brilliant if you live in Edinburgh The 25 comes around every 10 mins and the 34 every 15.×

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.
