    • The downside

      Some time the way the course is structured could be better & more thought out seems sometimes it hasnt been clearly done.

      Everyday expenses

      i have part time work in the city so it is easy to work alongside the course to earn extra money. I do not have a loan so live off my working contract and depending if a deadline is nearing will depend on how much money you spend. Material costs were way higher than i ever thought, and everything you use; you have to pay for. Lots of craft shops to choose from, including the uni shop which doesn't rip you off. Transport is my second biggest cost but that is because i do not live at home so that is a major cost but not in comparison to living on my own and paying rent.

    • The downside

      Barely any clubs or societies; no real cafeteria.

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.
