      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.

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.
