There are opportunities for student nurses to find part time work whilst they are studying.

The university accommodation is a bit expensive for some of the poorer students,however the accommodation department often are quite flexible about when rent payments are made which makes it a bit easier for the nursing students!×

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.
