I study biochemistry and I have 10 hours of lectures a week which are less towards the end of term. I have around 4 academic tutorials in a term for each module. There are also problem classes and about 3/4 practical sessions each term. The content of my course is extremely interesting especially when it relates to current affairs and is fairly challenging. We are set essays to do over holidays and have exams in January and June. Practicals require write ups after which can be questions or a long analytical report. The feedback I receive from tutors vary from good to bad but are generally ok and constructive. The feedback I receive on my exams from my personal tutor is excellent. The facilities for my course include labs and computer rooms.×

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.
