The timetable is aimed to have a balance between guidance from tutors and freedom to explore the new facilities and find your own style which works well as you receive help and direction when you need it. The tutors will normally give feedback that challenges the way you would normally approach things and constantly encourage you to push yourself further and develop as an artist and make sure that the resulting work is the best it can be.×

Beechcroft. It's halls. Like any other halls your experience is down to the people you're with. I loved and hated my time due to the corridor i was put in where i got on far better with people in other corridors than most of the people i was living with. Though it's easy to simply walk over to other corridors. The kitchens are what drove me crazy as we had 12 people sharing two broken ovens and 2 sinks and 1 washing machine. the amount of dirty rotting food that was left in those sinks was horrific. Again, down to who you live with. The caretakers are lovely though and do their job as well as they can without infuriating everyone that lives there. Other than that, it was just a simple place to live, not too dissimilar to a hostel.×
the university itself is great, the facilities and equipment is great. & so is the teaching.Report

The University does not own enough accommodation. The residences it does own are quite far away from the university and indeed the city centre, which is not exactly desirable. Additionally the student union has got significantly worse since I joined just two years ago, though this shows signs of change.×

I was in Harvard which was really nice. Being in a house with four other people with everyone having your own ensuite. There was a connivence store down the road and it was only a 20minute walk to town and the university. We also had a cleaner who came during the week. The houses were modern and clean. The only bad things i think was the fact the accommodations did not have their own hoovers. You had to ask the cleaners, and during my stay other students began hiding the hoovers meaning there were no more to give to everyone. Also the internet was famous for not being able to support the 5 laptops in the house and constantly would go down.×

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.
