Not as many teaching hours as expected, only in University for about 10 hours a week, as there is a lot of independent study time on my course. The work is varied, from essays, exams and even the occasional presentation and group work. Feedback from tutors varies, some give extensive feedback while others only give a few pointers, although many are willing to meet to discuss feedback if required. A lot of our lecture halls this year are a little small and can often be cramped when the lecture is full.×

Getting marks back from lecturers and also fair marking - Marking differs greatly, so much so that I have had ~20% difference from 2 different markers. Also getting results back takes a life time, and most of the time the feedback is unreadable and not signed by those that marked it×

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.
