I study Mathematics and they course is really interesting. The lecturers (that I've had during my first year) we all great and always happy to help if you needed it. The facilities in the Herschel building are good with a large computer cluster, though it does quite often get booked out by classes so it can be difficult to get a computer. There isn't much seating to do work in there either but the union and old library isn't far away×

As a law student I expected to do at lot of work, but to be honest I didn't find the work load much more than A-Levels and because you're only do 1 subject (Law) I actually found it easier to juggle my time. For me the course was really interesting; however, if you don't like History, Politics or remembering hundreds of cases the course is not for you!! In first year you do 8 essays, one of which counts towards your final first year grade and 4 summer exams. In my opinion this isn't actually that much to do!!×

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.
