      Academic Experience

      I have more than average contact hours (13) taught with a mixture of lectures and seminars so my course can be seen as more challenging. in terms of assessment, there are essays and presentations for each module. with every assessment there is a small amount of written feedback along with the mark.

      Accommodation

      Needler is known as the prison hall. Purely because it is the oldest and the most run down and looks a little like a prison. The rooms are a good size though but the kitchens are small and don't even have a table or even really working kitchen facilities. The bathrooms are also pretty average and the lock on one of the doors of one of the girls cubicles as been broken for about 3 months now. The food is not great but its edible however sometimes it seems that the catering staff don't even know what they are serving us. There are not too many people living in this hall so it is quite a close community and everyone knows how rubbish it is so its kind of a bonding experience. I was put in this halls because Hull was my insurance choice so my accommodation application was put in later than the firm choice people so I didn't really have a choice of accommodation.You don't need to worry about living in Needler though as it is being knocked down in the summer of 2016 and being made into an Aldi.

      Finances

      I don't think eating on campus everyday is an affordable thing to do, so I do that maybe once a week and the rest of the time I come home for lunch, as to save money. I think there is a lot of opportunity for part time work in and around university, so that can definitely help with costs and finally the accommodation I live at includes a free bus pass to get around anywhere within the Hull area, so that makes the cost of transport insignificant.

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.
