      Everyday expenses

      firstly there is no financial support for travelling costs to university. when on placement there is no financial support unless your placement is further than you would travel to university. Food on campus is expensive get used to bringing packed lunches on days you don't have time to nip into town. Remember you are in a city centre and take steps to travel around especially at night safely. Make the most of your library for printing it is often cheaper than using your own ink and paper. Jobs are easy to get but hard to fit around study and assignments .

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.
