      Academic Experience

      Love the course, good amount of teaching hours not too many like other unis, course is interesting some arent great for individual people but as a whole it's good. Most the course is essay based with exams at the end of the year and a few presentations.

      Everyday expenses

      On-site caf is good value. Cheap to average-priced restaurants/cafs/fast-food within 5-10 min walk. None with student deals other than standard chain restaurant offers. Lots of opportunity for part-time work nearby. Expensive council-owned parking with no help offered for student discounts/permits etc. Cheap course costs, but not particularly good value.

      A good balance between theory and practice. Exhaustive feedback. Not a lot of teaching hours.

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.
