Lidl has better tasting and better value food and drink than Tesco, so shop there, unless you want cheap ramen, in which case, go to the large Tesco by the Tay and buy from the world foods section.Part-time work is available, there are so many places needing students to work for them.If you like talking/teaching/science, even at the most basic level, the science centre is a great place to work if you get the opportunity.You generally won't need to catch the bus anywhere unless you get a job too far from the uni.Textbooks can be bought cheaply in freshers' week from previous students.×

Not a great deal of teaching time each week but this varies by degree subject and year. A varied and interesting course with opportunities to specialise in 3rd and 4th year. Generally good feedback from tutors, with them being readily accessible over email. Work mixed into fieldwork, labwork, essays, tutorials and presentations, both individual and grouped.×
Lack of space for individual subjects. Too much focus on subjects that they excel at and not enough on othersReport
University Union is good value for money and is a safe night outReport

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.
