      Facilities

      Library is ok, but we also have access to City Library as it does not have extensive resources. Building and facilities in terms of media, fashion etc. is brilliant as long as you book it. For example the TV studio, sound recording studio are always booked. Sports facilities, we have the Beckham academy opposite but it's down to students to organises things. The uni is full of media lovers and therefore lacks a sporting community. I for example, joined a ladies Charlton football team. Careers centre is brilliant, our employability officer posts opportunities daily and is always there to talk to students about placements or experience. She's awesome! Equipment such as laptops and other equipment can be taken out from CLR. This ranges from HD Broadcast cameras to VGA adaptors and cables. All can be booked, although cameras, sound and lighting equipment tend to go fast, so book in advance!

    • The downside

      The timetable changes every week, so it is hard to plan anything.

      As we are right next to the O2 it's quite good for restraunts.

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.

More on what university league tables really tell you.

This institution doesn’t feature in any of the three main league tables, most likely because it’s small or specialist and there isn’t enough data to create a ranking. In a small number of cases some universities have opted out appearing in certain league tables.
