      Big student nights. Get together. It is good for student to meet and know each other outside the academic interest.

      Everyday expenses

      Don't spend all your money on drink and tat that our society forces on you that you don't need and you'll be fine. Shop wisely when looking for a place to rent, standard london rent prices can be misleading in face of some of the hidden bargains that the dutiful searcher can find. Don't stress.

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.
