The hours are long - sometimes 9 to 6 and you are expected to do a lot of personal study on top of that. It's very demanding but if you are prepared then it's a great experience. Electrical engineering is very interesting but also very challenging. You have to be willing to put in the effort to get the most out of it. There aren't many essays but the final exams are long and tough. Tutors are always available and willing to help. Great facilities and helpful lab staff.×

Yes. The rooms are amazing but it's right next to the kitchen. Some halls are better. One is 40 mins away, I'm 5 mins. Most halls have got a good mix.×
They try hard to please every student but more often miss than hitReport
touch exams and an intense course in generalReport
Lots of design opportunities and chances to branch out creatively but these mostly only appear in the third year and onwardsReport

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.
