    • The downside

      Not many social clubs, would be nice for more. Also during deadline feels like a lack of computers.

      The upside

      The opening times - I understand its a smaller uni that can't be run 24/7 but it would have been really useful if we had full access to workshops and studios during the summer, easter and christmas breaks.

      teaching time - progressively less taught sessions as you move up through the years, as expected, no issues there Course content- Great, love the freedom and choice, however I do wish there was an even bigger focus on career paths.Feedback from tutors is really regular, provided you go to tutorials or ask for feedback. Facilities have improved, and are set to improve even more with more equipment and technology currently being ordered

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.
