The staff who work in the library are very helpful and nice, it gives you a 'want to study' attitude. There are always many places to get a computer, such a the library, silent study, quiet study and many classrooms that are not in use. You always have plenty social time (especially for first year) and also plenty of study time. Depending on which modules you enjoy I found them all very informative and easy to understand, once you had your head around it.×
Could be more hands on practical work especially for courses such as Computer Networks.Report
There was a lack of books at uni that was disappointing especially as some of these were key test for the modules.Report

Human Biology is a great course for anyone who want to increase their understanding of the human body. On average there are about 18 hours of taught study a week, including a 6 hour lab day where you can learn new practical skills. The course content can be quite challenging at times, but that's what you must expect with a science degree, and support from tutors and other students makes the experience a lot easier to handle.×

There is a fair range of activities provided however I'm not sure that the attendance is huge. The events that I have been to however have been great, such as the smartphone quiz in the union bar every Monday. All events are pretty well publicised, so if there is something you want to go to, you will usually know about it.×

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.
