The sporting facilities are great, with a vast array of socities and professional teams competing at all levels. The student union supports both assistance with your studies but a great deal of socialising from student nights in the town centre to providing an SU Bar as well as resonable priced food at the cafes and restaurants on campus. In university there isn't many quiet areas where you can meet up with friends as the campus is always busy but the nearby town centre has numerous cafes,bars and restaurants to meet up in as well as shopping facilities and cinemas.×

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.
