Because I live in greater Manchester the cost of travelling to university is really good - for just 111 I can use any buses and any trains within greater Manchester at any time for a month. The food on campus is a little bit more costly than I had expected so I don't really eat on campus a lot, however there are plenty of food places around the university to go to×
They organise things from volunteering to parties and talksReport
Doesn't cater for students who live at homeReport
You'll get very little 1 on 1 contact with any lecturers which makes it really hard. The course is so hard when you first start...
You'll get very little 1 on 1 contact with any lecturers which makes it really hard. The course is so hard when you first start but you get the hang of it. For maths we have a worksheet every week for every module which is very time consuming! You get very little feedback and mostly have to mark your own work×
The weather - it rains too much!!!Report
As long as you keep an eye on it it is easy and if you plan even easier.Report

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.
