Often the best advice is to stay close to the department you are studying with. So for example, if you are doing engineering or maths, DC or the student village is an ideal place to stay. I personally stayed in the holt, even though it was far away from the engineering department, as it was the only one I could take my car to. I also decided to stay in self catering, which is better for anyone with a busy degree or with an awkward timetable, as meal times are set in catered halls. Self catered is also much cheaper than catered in general.×
Cost of living is good, but not amazing. Cheap but quality accomodation available if you look for it.Report
Easy to manage if you think about things and straighten out prioritiesReport
Lots of activities taking place and societies so make sure you get involved in as many as you canReport

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.
