Plenty of private and company shared student accomodation and houses of a reasonable quality but cheap and affordable and in close proximity to university and nightlife.×
Lecturers could be more helpful with ICA briefs and mark schemesReport

Uni buildings are very much a mix of ugly 60's and shiny new ones, with the equipment inside pretty much the same, honestly it has pretty much all the technology you'd need just nothing super impressive. What I like is the attitude the uni has to their more expensive equipment, like the green-screen or the 3D printer, no matter what course you study you're welcome to use it. The library is about to be completely refurbished and most importantly has plenty of resources! Though more recent books would be nice. The uni has it's own gym, not very big or glamorous but the equipment is really good and they do a fair few classes and trainers. The sports field is huge and there's a climbing wall so i imagine if you're sport you'll be well catered for. The careers centre is the one place that could do with some improvement, their advice is always good but extremely general , they used to help students secure very important work placements but they've been a bit slow off the mark with it the last couple of years and i think google might be a bit more helpful than them.×

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.
