      Academic Experience

      Found the change from classrooms to lectures abit strange at first. Having a full lecture theatre can be quite distracting but it is far more enjoyable. Alot of the work is done away from the lectures and seminars so managing my time is important. This can be quite challenging at times as the course requires you to gather your own research but overall it is worth all the hard work. Some of the aspects of the course are abit boring but mostly it is interesting. Assignments started pretty much straight away which was abit of a shock but its good to get you used to the work load. Feedback was always helpful and support sessions are avaliable.

      Facilities

      The spaces ar very well set out, the uni is nicely spread out without being too big/ confusing, but also managed to feel very well thought out and planned. The actual facilities such as library and student union bar are top top quality.

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.
