    • The downside

      Some time scales for seminar reading were not realistic and were giving on 1 night to complete.

      The library has some books and computers, though not a lot of the latter anymore. They have a gym that is reasonable, you can play squash. They have pc labs that are generally easy enough to access, if a random lecturer doesn't throw you out for an unposted class.

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.
