Bach hall is one of the cheapest places to live which is university owned. I am kind of happy with where I live ad I didn't want to spend LOADS on accomodation. However, I do not think that where I live is a particularly sociable place as it is so far from the uni and the main campus×
Interesting lessons with good access to facilities such as labs and computer roomsFeedback is detailed and helpfulReport

We have an excellent balance of teaching and self-study time; we have 10-12 hours of teaching each week which is more than a lot of universities offer. The content is challenging and there is a lot of it, especially for modules such as contract law. However, the work is interesting, for the most part, and as long as you have a keen interest in law there will be no problems. Most of our work is either coursework or exams. However, we have had a couple of assessed presentations/debates, a timed controlled assessment and a few portfolios and CV type assignments. The varied methods of assessment help us to build upon different skills and apply our knowledge of the law in different circumstances. Feedback from tutors on work is usually fairly prompt and is always very useful. Also, if you have any issues with feedback, tutors are more than happy to have a chat about where you could improve and what their comments meant. We have recently moved the law school to an off-campus building with is a lot nicer than the building we were originally in. There are seminar rooms and lecture will be held on campus. There's also a fully furnished mock court room, along with a quiet study area with computers. These are great facilities.×

The houses are nice but you need more than a communal kitchen to hang out in. Also the walls are quite thin so you can hear your house mates conversations. You also aren't allowed any kitchen appliances such as toasty makers and they get confiscated if found.×

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.
