great sewing workshops but not enough time allocated to some classes. great facilities and computer programmes-gives you the upper hand to other studying fashion who don't learn to use these industrial programmes and techniques×
the campus is really nice, especially in first year it keeps everyone together in a major city which gives a great night life.Report

The halls I lived in (Pentland) have just been knocked down, but I had friends in all the different halls. I wouldn't necessarily say one was better than the other, because they are all different styles, so it depends what you want. I did enjoy spending time in my friend's flat in Ettrick, but that was also down to the people. What you put into halls and who your hallsmates are make the experience, not necessarily which building you are in. In terms of student flats, I lived in Slateford, which was really handy for Asda and buses to uni/town. Most HW students live there or in Gorgie, which is closer to town, but more accessible for buses to uni.×

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.
