I was expecting a lot worse standard wise however it is quite stifling with the resident tutors and the rules and security come in without warning which often gives it the feel of a boarding school as opposed to uni halls this isnt helped by them not allowing guests and putting locks on the windows×

As hope isn't in the city centre there Are a few extra social travel costs to consider and this does add up, the uni shop is well stocked and not too pricy. There's lots of great budget places to eat including a weather spoons and a pub that do a lovely carvery. The uni often advertises jobs on campus but like anywhere it's not easy to pick up part time work but if your persostant you will find it.×

I think the amount of lectures and teaching we have each week is perfect, there is not too many an not too less. The content of the course is very interesting and there is a diverse wide range of topics that it covers. The essays and exams that are put in place are hard and challenging and that time, but that's what you came to university for right?×

The campus launderette is expensive, so save up your washing and do one big load instead of half loads. Don't sign up for the gym in your first term, despite your eagerness and good intentions, that will be money down the drain, and you will regret it!×

The library: Does not have a lot of money put into it at all-books on certain subjects are outdated and in short supply. The online journal access is also poor. There are a few computers but during busy times there is not enough. Books that are very popular are either for reference only or a 24 hour loan-sounds good but in practice isnt-when you have 20+ students in your class wanting the same book, be prepared to wait. The library staff are really helpful though. Buildings: Asthetically they are nice, for anything else they are not so good. The lecture theatres are uncomfortable and the sound system is not very good. In certain lecture theatres people with hearing difficulties like myself will be sat there trying to lip read even from the front row. Sports facilities: There is a gym, it is tiny and has very few machines available. I have also heard that it is closed every so often so a certain TV program can be filmed in there-at this time there is no access. Careers serive: you can sign up for an email alert when jobs are available, there are not many good ones and the best only have like 2 vacancies. There is a person that can help with CVs etc if you book an appointment, thought I have not used this service myself.×

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.
We’ve pinpointed the key sites where teaching takes place. Check in the smallprint of the course you’re interested in to see where exactly you’d be based, especially if there are multiple locations spread across a wide area.
