      Academic Experience

      Living in the city its very easy to get distracted by everything to buy, a lot of people I know are struggling with budget. But there are a lot of places to get cheap food and essentials.

      Academic Experience

      Teaching time often exceeds 12 hours a week. Workshops and lectures are given once or twice a week by visiting professionals and all full time lecturers have industry experience or complete freelance work outside the university. Emails and feedback are answered quickly and in detail. Emails are sent out at the beginning of each week with detailed timetables for the next week showing group assignments and lecture times as well as details (file size and location to submit) for work made over the week for assessment.

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.
