    • The downside

      I would say its the expectations of scores and preparing to exams. I would expect much more influence on students to work hard.

    • Everyday expenses

      I would just advise to expect the realism of it. You get paid next to nothing and still have to survive, so just to be sensible.

      Academic Experience

      Really badly organised. Not enough teachers. Poor teaching. Support outside of lectures varies. Course is challenging. Work on three assignments and three exams each year, along with placement. Teachers feedback varies though as a uni they don't have a high standard. Simulation facilities for the health care side of things is good.

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.
