      Everyday expenses

      Costs of transport can be high if regularly using the bus. This can be reduced by purchasing a bus pass for whole year or by cycling and using the universities bike shed facilities. There are multiple options for food on campus but the majority are take-away type food, which can be expensive. Alternatively there is a supermarket on campus. The campus is really close to the city centre where there are multiple options for food, drink, shopping and part-time work.

      Accommodation

      Accommodation in first year is pretty poor. The application process ask you to rank your preferences (eg, for en suite or catered etc) but the rankings were largely ignored and as I ended up in a catered hall despite not ranking this at all, and of the people I met in my halls, I met about 2 people who actually wanted to be in catered halls. There is a wide range of private accommodation for second and third years.

      Everyday expenses

      I found it rather easy to manage your costs, as close to both the university halls and the university itself there were various places available to buy value food and drink, such as Tesco, Greggs, Subway and Costa coffee, as well as good value places to eat nearby the halls of residence. Although I found buying a bus pass quite expensive at the beginning of the year, it did not take me long to realise that it was actually really good value, and I definitely got my money's worth from it.

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.
