      Everyday expenses

      Transport was expensive in first year as I needed to purchase a 315 bus pass due to halls being 30 mins away from uni. Second and third year travel costs are very cheap - only have to pay for taxis on nights out, as you can walk everywhere else. Really good value food places around uni on campus so lunch can be cheap too

      Academic Experience

      Art and Design A very varied and flexible course which caters for all individual needs and styles. Modules cover many different fields of design, ideal for gaining skills and an idea of future prospects. Have enjoyed the balance of written, research and practical work which has mostly interested me and been reasonably challenging. Tutor and student relationship is ok although you can request more time and further feedback if needed. Facilities are average and buying materials is expensive!

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.
