As an engineering course I have a lot of contact hours, but they are interesting topics. I have a lot of lectures, some labs and a tutor meeting every week. Throughout the year there are group projects and set coursework that has to be completed by set deadlines, they are hard work and you need to have good time management but there are members of staff there to help you through the transition from a level to university life. We have to complete lab reports and presentations for some of our coursework. Some projects are portfolio style. The course content is interesting and challenging, you learn a lot of new material and some topics overlap with some topics you might have learnt at a level. You get feedback from tutors in the meetings you attend each week and they are there to support you through your degree. They're very helpful. Our labs and workshops are really good, they have all the equipment needed for our course and they have all the material needed to complete the workshops. The lecture halls are large enough for all the students, our computer labs have all the programs we need to complete the course.×

Different types of accommodation appeal to different people. The halls are great if your a party animal. The 'golden triangle'housing area is great for closeness to town. The kingfisher area is great for being near campus and not far from town and is the quietest area but still had plenty of people.×

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.
