Bar is cheap and has a good view. Prefer to eat outside Uni. Could do with an undergrad lounge.Report
The common room, the spit, is a good place to socialize with friends.Report

If you are taking 4 modules per term which divide up into either 2 hour lectures or a 1 hour lecture and a one hour seminar/tutorial, then you end up having at least 8 hours a week in lectures. The course is a interesting and challenging as the time and effort you put into it - you can only really participate in a seminar if you've done the reading. The reading requirements can be quite high. You have to do about 2 short essays per module per term or one long essay as coursework. There are also exams for some modules and weekly exercises for others. Feedback tends to be very good from tutors. No course specific facilities needed. The academic experience is very good all in all. Unfortunately some courses and parts of degrees get less attention than others because they are less popular, but hopefully the courses will survive and the range of courses you can take will remain good.×

Because of the central loacation of the university there are always numerous places in and around to meet friends by. The strand campus has many cafes and bars actually in it too. In terms of general space however there is not much - there are limited if none at all green spaces bar terraces with outside tables and chairs, and no immediate sports facilities.×

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.
