VERY VERY few contact hours and you can get away with not doing the recommended reading as the seminar tutors talk about the key points all seminar and tell you what to think of it. Essays and exams are the only way they monitor your progress and they are very specific (focused on one or two weeks) so you can just learn those weeks and ignore the rest. Courses material moves very fast and doesnt go into much detail which makes it hard to truly engage. Feedback from essays isnt very useful as it normally just says you need to go to a study skills workshop but doesnt say why! My facilities where really bad and we often had lectures in other departments buildings and didnt record any of the lectures which would have been helpful.×

Provided me with a lot of support through student in higher years of study of my course to my personal tutor to help with the transition from college to university I was able to contact my subject-based tutor for any concern I had about the work through e-mail, etc Had student-led forums on social media to allow us to help each other with our course Had quality career events/fairs to meet recruiters and employers The social/night life is amazing as there is chance to participate in many societies×
gym membership (high and its required for several sport groups), better SUReport

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.
