The academic facilities are on the whole, very good. The library is good, and labs are fantastic. I have not used sports facilities but a gym is available. Careers centre is brilliant and useful. The only time books and pcs are hard to come by is during exams and peak times i.e lunch, 6-8pm.×

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.
