For my course and the majority of Arts and Social Science courses, there are 2 hour lectures and 1 hour seminar per week. First year students ususally take 3 subjects, so this becomes 9 hours timetabled study per week. Arts subjects usually require a lot of reading, so although the contact hours will be minimal, you will be expected to do a lot of independent study. There is much support available, with each department having their own librarian dedicated to helping students find the resources they need.×

Pendle college is split into two, the ensuite accommodation is in the south west part of campus, which is not shown in the campus map. I was told math lectures would be in the management school and george fox building which is close to pendle, hence why i chose to live there. But all my math lectures were on the opposite side of campus. Ash house is a very basic standard of accommodation, not very homely. Grizedale is in a good spot with launderette and store very close by.×

I, as a law student, actually have little contact hours and instead am given lots of reading, and this is especially challenging for contract law, where the language is very complex! I would advise doing some pre reading around the subject before arriving at university. The content is mainly interesting, other than contract, and its good how you can see everything relating back to the world you live in. We are given a mixture of essays and exams, exams mostly at the end of the year. The feedback from tutors is not always helpful I must admit, but generally they try and point out the main parts you did wrong.×

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.
