The costs quite overwhelmed me in the beginning, everything is more expensive in London. However, the careers service is very good and supportive and finding a job on campus or something like tutoring / mentoring is quite easy and also works well on your CV×
Student bar is good. Surrounding area is full of pubs, bars and clubs.Report
Feedback is not particularly great for medicine.Report

The amount of teaching is very little, and quality may vary upon courses/ or preferences depend on the individual. First year is quite easy, but second year can be quite difficult, especially depending on the choices you select. Mostly exam based work, with midterms (which other courses don't have), and some coursework once in a while. However, the assessment methods largely depend on your choice of modules in year 2. There are things that could be improved, such as poor integration and management of the course, where different people say different things which has definitely caused a lot of students to miss out on taking certain modules, however the student representative system is quite significant in helping us with changes/issues etc.×

*Accommodation not available for all first years and have heard that they allocate to some within central London when they won't allocate it first to those who live closer to the m25. *Careers service in helping people with what they would like to do especially for the careers outside the studied subject area *Mobile signal on Waterloo and Strand campus *Books can be found in the library rather than spending a fortune on it and for the recommended reading which isn't available in the library, the books should be made available in the library rather than having to search for it online (for my course, although this may not apply for other courses)×

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.
