      The downside

      General organisation - I was in an unfortunate position in that I began a joint honours course two years before the joint honours centre was closed down and the year before my course stopped new intakes. This has resulted in me returning back from a year in industry into my fourth year with a diminished network of support - there were numerous problems with my module registration.

      Everyday expenses

      there are wide range of food outlets around the university that if I had known earlier would have helped save costs as well as providing good value food. there is less advertisement of such outlets and you have to rely on yourself going out to find out.

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.
