Transport: The buses are very cheap; weekly tickets start at 12.00, singles for a student cost either 1.40 or 1.70 depending on the company and the availablity of buses throughout the day is good, however the only bus from town that goes to the uni stops at 6:30pm weekdays and does not run on Sundays. There is a free bus to the other campuses that runs every half hour monday to friday. Taxis are also very reasonable and you dont have to wait long. Food and drink: The university has a canteen area that serves a lot of different food-I have never eaten in there though. The vegetarian options are poor and there is no halal meat if that is required. If you walk around 10 mins you will reach the main student area which has many bars and cafes as well as Tesco and Asda stores. Part time work: The university has a few positions every so often but they go fast, you are best off looking in the shops in the town centre. Extra course costs: On my course (Social Work), there is the opportunity to attend conferences for a small fee (15 for the one I attended). There is also the posibility completing your first placement in India or Cyprus if you can afford it, and the department normally holds a trip to Palastine for the first years which you also have to pay for.
