Connections and experience. The opportunities given to me to display my work in exhibitions and also spaces within the university and around the city are really brilliant. The teaching quality is also brilliant, but nowhere near enough contact hours.×

The best time to start looking is just after Christmas, early in the year after finding out if you've been accepted before its too late. Looking before the rush of everyone else could be helpful although even last minute there will always be places available. I looked through the list of accommodation and estate agents provided by the university to be able to compare and find all suitable house although in the second year I found researching independently in the area I knew and enquiring with estate agents myself worked even easier. It's a very good idea to check out the estate agent you're going with before you sign anything though. Don't be alarmed to have to pay what seems like a lot of money before you move in, normally the deposit and a format months rent which will balance itself out in the long run.×

To be completely honest, the clubbing scene has progressively gotten worse over the three years I've been at uni, however there are lots of really good bars and pubs now. Your typical fresher would probably head towards the prince of wales road for their first nightlife experience.×

I think it's fairly easy to manage your costs while at the uni but for most this does involve quite a bit of walking. Norwich is a fairly small city and you can walk to most places if you have a bit of will power, this will save you huge amount of money in the long run. Drinking is fairly cheap, especially if you're used to prices around london. Loads of pubs and bars around Norwich considering it's size, getting work proved reasonably easy for me despite not having any prior experience. In terms of tips, I'd say shop at cheap supermarkets, aldi esspecially, walk as much as you can and perphas consider not living in halls, as it's nearly always cheaper to live in houses.×

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.
