Marlborough and solsbury are good value for money. They offer en suite facilities with flat sizes of 7 which is a good size as there aren't too many people to contend with when cooking etc. woodland is nice but has larger flats which may suit people who like to be surrounded by larger numbers of people. Eastwood and Westwood aren't en suite but friends who do live there say there is adequate bathroom equipment so they've never had to wait. However sometimes these communal areas end up grotty as they are shared and not cleaned. Town accommodation is the worst in my opinion as you don't experience the full effect of campus life where a friend is just down the corridor or the adjacent building. It's also an effort to get to campus which adds stress when trying to find your way around×

Chem eng has about 16-20 hours a week. The course content is challenging as its a new concept for most the people studying it as there are no A levels in engineering. However every other week in the first term you have meetings with the personal tutor which helps you to sort out any questions and problems. Although the content is challenging the exams are do-able even if some times they seem not to be when your in the middle of the course×
More focused contact time and a longer course. We finish at the end of May and the lecturers have been rushing to finish in timeReport
library has a good collection of books and a useful system for reserving books.Report
They've got loads of stuff from open mic nights and pub quizzes to nights out at KlassReport

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.
