The library because often the books that you want are usually taken very quickly and often have to wait a long time to get a book you have requested. Also the facilities on each of the campuses differ, for example the careers service is in a small room and is quite difficult to find on Guy's Campus, but is much bigger on Strand Campus and easier to find.×

I have 8 hours a weeks of 'uni' time, i.e. lectures and seminars and the rest of the time I'm free to work independently. The quality of lectures completely depends on whose giving it, but generally, if this general topic interests you, they're quite good. Seminars are alright but I find it unfair that we are graded in participation, i.e. how much we speak and engage in discussions. Not everyone is as confident, or sure of themselves as others, it to some it can be quite an ordeal having to involuntarily speak up in a room full of confident speakers. In my opinion, participation just shouldn't count towards your degree, it's what you can demonstrate in an exam or in an essay (well according to the UK education system, anyway) not how confidently you can make something sound when in actual fact, it's just wittering rubbish.×

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.
