In first year I had two hours of lectures each day (10-12), two supervisions per week and one "surgery" each week (a one hour session to ask questions about things we didn't understand in the course). This may not sound like that much but you are expected to do a lot of work on your own on top of this to complete example sheets for the supervisions. The course content is very interesting for the most part (everyone has modules they like more than others) and it is all challenging especially at first due to the speed hat the lecturers go at. There are no essays to do, it's all example sheets (typically a sheet is about 15 long questions in similar style to STEP) We get feedback on our example sheets during the supervisions when the supervisor has marked the sheets and goes through the questions with us and each term we have reports from each supervisor which are giving to our director of studies and discussedwith us in an end-of-term meeting×

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.
We’ve pinpointed the key sites where teaching takes place. Check in the smallprint of the course you’re interested in to see where exactly you’d be based, especially if there are multiple locations spread across a wide area.
