There is plenty of teaching and the hours spent in classes are generally useful. There is an awful lot of content to get your head around and the overflowing library near exams is evidence of this. Tutors are helpful and usually willing to discuss things in depth.×

Plenty of choice for every budget. I prefer to bring my own food to uni but if I do eat there are plenty of cheap places for cake or sandwiches. I would recommend the university precinct for cheap sandwiches of outstanding quality! Agency work has variable hours but can be a good earner for people that are flexible when it comes to the hours they can work. Transport is okay but I would definitely recommend getting a 'unirider' which works out as really good value for money.×

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.
