I've just finished my first year of a medical degree, there are very little course costs in comparison to the later years because they give you all your vaccinations for free and there's only 1 day of travelling to placement. There's a few shops on the north area of campus (bakery, Tesco, Greggs, Subway, Costa) that means there's lots of options for getting a cheap lunch. You can get a bus pass at the start of the year, which is expensive but if you get it when your student loan comes in it won't be too painful, and you don't have to worry about paying for the bus all year.×

I have a fair amount of hours and get good value for money in the terms of teaching time. However, the teaching is very impersonal and on some levels inadequate. Tutors can be unsupportive. Work is a mixture of challenging and prior knowledge so there s a good mix. My course, Biological Sciences, has an obscene amount of exams (upto 15 a year, and 2 hour exams also). There can be a lack of books in the library however lecturers do give plenty of extra reading for clarification. Other than that you receive little feedback from tutors, some may not even answer emails.×

The student union is great; there is a bar which has delicious food, and there is also a shop in case you need to grab something on the go. The communal area is a great meeting place too. There are quite a few university cafes dotted about which are great, and there's one on Abercromby square which is great to sit outside in summer.×
I started looking in August, i should have done this earlier but I got lucky and found a good house and great housemates.Report
Guild is absolutely appallingReport

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.
