Set up a savings account and work out how much you'll have to spend per month and keep the rest of it in a separate savings as it's easy to blow it all at once×

I have a decent amount of teaching time although it is spread out through the week and as I travel into uni it would be better to be condensed into 2 or 3 days rather than spread over the week. Course is interested and challenging on the most part but obviously there are a couple of boring modules. I do mostly do coursework in the form of lab reports and a couple of presentations throughout the year but most marks are awarded for the end of year exams. Feedback is usually good. Course specific facilities for my course are great×

The Sports hall is a 40 minute walk away from the university, very impractical however if you are willing to go to it, it is huge! Library is open 24/7 however you will never find room in it unless you go to it between 3am-7am. Really busy campus! Accommodation ranges from great and expensive to moderate and poor quality, there is only enough space in halls for 60% of first years. This university is for self-learning students, if you fail you fail the staff are not here to drag you to a 2,1 or 1st degree.×

Master classes into variety of subjects where you receive a certificate for your portfolio. Lots of study daysReport

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.
