The triangle is the main student area where people tend to go out during the week. There is a good range of nightlife from cheesy pop nights at Lizard Lounge to deep house nights at Motion.×

majority of lecturers are good, the course is interesting. With reference to my course there is a really good final week where we build a working cup dispensing vending/ coffee machine, this was unexpected and very good fun, plus gave some hands on experience.×

The university buildings are beautiful, many with a grand historical appearance, but with modern interiors suited to there purpose. The libraries are modern and well-equipped with lots of books and resources such as laptops and desktops, private and group study areas. There are also old books and journals in vaults from many years ago. However, some popular books recommended by lecturers are in high demand and unavailable a lot of the time, so you do have to have the money to buy important ones, however you do get use out of them. Do not buy all books recommended by lecturers, especially first year, as you will probably not need them to the extent you would expect. You should see how useful the book is from the library first to save yourself money. First year you will find there are only one or two books you really need to buy as they are both useful and popular, and others the library is perfect for. Libraries are open 24/7 which comes in very handy. The laboratories are well equipped with everything, including a human stimulator which allows you to see how the human body reacts to environments and factors that are dangerous or too damaging to inflict on living people.×

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.
