      Everyday expenses

      The caf at Havering campus is excellent value and the friendly staff make it a pleasure to eat there. The local train services are very cheap and there are local buses from Romford city centre. There are no significant additional course costs. There are good opportunities for part-time work within the University and the local area.

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.
