Social life here is great if you like getting mindlessly drunk, if not, you're kind of left to find your own entertainment. I started up a drama society and have had practically no support from the SU apart from them wanting to take credit for my work, I do however anticipate all the above changing with a new SU team this year×

Opportunities for flexible work are great - I do bits and pieces of work for the uni, and even better some freelance editing work. The O2 also very close and many people I know have flexible part time work there However, it is an expensive part of London and there's been no money management advice available as far as I'm aware×

Other courses, specifically digital photography, 1 visiting lecturer all year scheduled to be in whilst we were due to be in another lecture. Being so focused on canon equipment and mac computers, completely biased and if you are a nikon/windows user, you do feel a massive pressure to convert which is not financially possible in most cases. The projects on photography are so specific and similar and uninsping, I honestly have bearly learnt anything in the whole year, which i am not impressed at, 3600 odd a year for this? is just not worth it. In the the 3rd term (10 weeks) I was timetabled for less than 25 days in uni, with only one project for the whole term. Every project i've been given i've been told to 'keep it simple, stupid (K.I.S.S), meaning my creativity is constantly shot down and forced to be as basic as possible, the projects are all very similar and get boring and tedious. One of the two photography lecturers is the worst teacher i have ever had, every single question someone asks him, he either makes a sarcastic comment, doesn't answer ('i've already answered this question in the brief' when you are asking the question because you don't understand what he's written) or tells you to find out yourself ('i'm not going to spoon-feed you' when asking a specific question about submission, the difference between a pass and a fail), which is not particularly helpful or inspiring. I have currently lost all passion for my subject by constantly being squashed down to fit into these simple ideas in strict breifs.×

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.
