The gym is horrendous, might as well purchase weights. Apart from that, great outdoor areas to chill and plenty of bars and shops to find food etc nightlife is slightly difficult but can be just as good as anywhere.×

Best student deals is venue but the playlist is repetitive and gets a bit boring. Club chemistry is probably one of the better clubs, 3 floors all catering to different music tastes, great vibe as well×

There are on site cafes and shops where you can get food from, but also the university isn't very far from the town centre which has lots of different places to eat. Plus the food from the on site cafes and shops are not very expensive so that's good for managing money. When it comes to buying books during freshers week some courses have a society where you can buy some core texts, also there is a book shop on campus which sells some of the texts. Cost of transport is reasonable, the campus has lots of bus stops, which allows for catching a bus to the town centre easy×
Some on campus accommodation is part catered and is fairly poorReport
Small hours but huge work load. Stressful, tiring. Not sure if worth it yetReport

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.
