There is a Blyth Music Centre within the main campus. It has approximately 8 rooms which range from small rooms with stand-alone pianos to larger rooms which can accommodate an acapella group of 10 people complete with a grand piano to practise. The rooms can be booked by any student who wants to practice the piano or their own instrument. The Musical Theatre Society is quite actively run as well. They typically stage 3 shows every year and charge 5 for tickets.×
A few creative societies, but because we are a science only university there isn't much going on.Report

we have roughly about 6-8 hours of lectures and tutorials a day the course overall has some interesting aspects but overall gets a bit boring and tedious. you're required to do quite a bit of course works and problem sheets i would advise you stay on top of those at all times. The feedback you receive from tutors is overall helpful. Our course specific facilities are state of the art and very modern. Also the overall teaching standard is not something to write home about there are the outliers who teach superbly but then there are quite a few others at the other end of the spectrum. So overall expect long hours in the library or in your room studying×

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.
