      Everyday expenses

      Very easy in my opinion, just be weary of splurging as soon as your loan goes through, try to limit yourself to spending 10 or 20 on nights out. Try to stick to the larger supermarkets for food as they are generally better value and have a better selection of reduced goods. Transport isn't a problem as most housing is a short walk from the uni. Try to get some part time work in your first year as you will generally have more time for it (depends on your course), but I found it very difficult to get work in the SU as a first year student.

      Everyday expenses

      Additional costs for exams that I wasn't informed about until very close to the exam dates (same across the whole course, no information given by any University staff). It's very difficult to manage your costs unless you have support from a job or other source of income. There are plenty of local supermarkets with cheap food and drink but it pays to shop around if you're trying to save as much money as possible. Jobs very sparce in the area, lots of unemployment and little to no external job opportunities. The university sometimes generates part time jobs, these are more common than external jobs in my experience.

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.
