When it's not exam time there is loads of work but people tend not to spend much time on it. Mainly seminar and lecture preparations. This means there's a lot of reading to do. Often you need to prepare a presentation (I've done one for every module). Some modules require weekly online activities. For my course (languages) this is a range of listening, reading, writing and grammar exercises related to the theme of the seminar. The content is fairly challenging and interesting. There's a lot of choice too - picking up a new language, literature, history, linguistic, film etc. Modern language facilities are very good. During seminars you have a computer each and lecturers are recorded. Most lessons are held in and around the old library building. An amazing facility is language Centre. There's computers with language software, many language books and films to use within the centre. Definitely an amazing place of study for a Languages student. For languages there are essays, exams, oral exams and presentations. Feedback from tutors is very good but if you're ever unsatisfied they are always available via email or during their children consolation hours.×

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.
