student union bar great place to meet, always a queue though, plenty of places to grab food and socialise with friends, the atrium is perfect for meeting friends for work or for a chat×
the library needs to have more cd's and dvd'sReport
The labs close at 9pm and the library at around 10pm which is ridiculous for students, especially in the final weeks!Report

There is a fair bit of teaching per week, however it's no where near as much as school. I had about 12 hours a week of teaching. The subjects I covered in my first year were very interesting, however, some things covered were the same as what I covered at A-level. My course is heavily weighed by essays (I take psychology). My essays always come back with lots of detailed feedback and the opportunity to have more help if I needed it. Finally, the facilities on my course are quite high-tech and up to date.×

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.
