I have an assignment to complete about once a month, since my course is part-time. There is a fair amount of reading and note-making that needs to be done for each assignment but with support from my tutor it's no problem to do and it's definitely not a chore as I enjoy it so much! I'm doing a degree in Environmental Studies which is something I am very interested in and care a great deal about so it's very rewarding. There are some challenges but my tutor is only at the end of a phone/e-mail so I feel confident that if I get stuck, my query will be dealt with and I can carry on studying asap. My tutor's feedback for my assignments was invaluable, I can't express how much it helped me improve in my writing and my understanding of the course material.×

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.
