      Everyday expenses

      With a very low student loan, I have still been able to survive and budget. There are many shops in Southampton which cater for the students. However, finding part-time work has been a struggle. I thought I would have more of a chance of finding work in Southampton, however I have not yet been succesful.

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.
