I stayed in Pilgrim Halls of Residence in an ensuite room. These halls are in the student village which is a 4 minute walk from uni, which is great. Pilgrim is the same as Radnor and is known as one of the nicest halls. (Gilwell is known as the ghetto!). My room was a good size, had loads and loads of storage (including under the bed), and the bathroom was fine. Our kitchen was too small for 7 of us and needed updating, but we made do.×

All the big supermarkets are in Plymouth, so one can just buy all the cheap stuff from there. There is a medium sized Sainsburys 3 minute walk from the Uni, and a Iceland near to that if one eats that stuff. Also a M&S 1 min away if people feel inclined for some nice food. Drinks are very cheap, especially on student nights, or nights where there are special offers, normally BOGOF. The many pubs bars and clubs offer opportunities for part time employment, however they tend to be at night time so can disrupt peoples studies if they aren't very good at not getting much sleep. There have been barely any additional costs for my course, in the first year needed to buy personal protective equipment, but that has been it so far.×
The course has been fantastic.Report

Receive detailed feedback from lecturers and they're very willing to help offer support as well as being approachable. The course content is focused on application to real world problems and the industry rather than focusing on memorising derivations - so we learn/remember what we'll actually need to use×

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.
