The amount of teaching varies widely between courses. As a second year music student i managed to weight my second semester to have 7 timetabled hours per week. However, my housemate had 30 hours of civil engineering a week. Feedback is in a really useful format and the tutors are always there to help. The music department is the best in the country at the moment with loads of beautiful steinway pianos everywhere and a great concert scene. Theres also the rncm if you get bored of UoM facilities×

The library facilities are especially good and as far as Maths facilities go the actual Maths building is new and it has several rooms in which you can conduct quiet, or not so quiet study and a computer room. As far as facilities for other faculties go all I can say is that I have heard that facilities for Medicine and Physics students are also very good.×

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.
