I would say it is a good idea to budget as university is very expensive! Food and drink is cheap on campus but when you are buying lunch everyday it all adds up to a considerable amount.×

The teaching is as you would expect it: a lecture is primarily the giving of information and starting points for further study, whereas the seminars (provided you do the work and have a friendly classroom) provide a good opportunity to discuss and analyse the content of the previous lecture. The content of the Law degree is quite diverse, but in consideration, is probably much like any other university's LLB programme. It definitely gets more interesting the more you read and do the work, which is my only lamentation post-degree. The work can easily be completed to an average standard with the information taught, but it is strongly advised that new students explore the material. I would also recommend you read some generic books by judges, like Tom Bingham's The Rule of Law and Lord Denning's The Discipline of Law to get you in the mood! Mainly exams and essays, with the occasional presentation thrown in. Feedback is usually prompt, and if you take it on board can really improve your performance. Law doesn't really need that many facilities, although the legal library and databases are excellent, and the mock-court room is nice, although I've only been in it once!×

Teaching amount is just right with 1to1's available if more is needed. The content is very clear and also what is expected of you. The work is moderate amount, not too much or little. The feedback is prompt and very insightful in helping you improve. My course facilities are good.×

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.
