More about the course and exactly what it covers, they give a brief overview but not the full story. Would be a good idea that they have the ability to show sample work for the first year for students to see if they could perform the tasks needed×
Too much emphasis on the art side. Seriously, I don't care for those f*cking timewasters.Report

I live locally & I am a mature student so I have plenty of experience managing money etc. Northampton is quite a large town & there are lots of opportunities for parrt time work. Public transport is quite good & if you go from campus to campus & show your student card then the journey is free. There are a variety of supermarkets close to each other & two within a 10-15 minute walk from the campus.×

I think no matter where one is, managing costs as a student will be difficult. There are plenty of supermarkets surrounding both campuses; a Gregg's on both campuses in the canteen; there is a Job-Shop on campus and online; and with a student card, one can catch a free bus between campuses. As a student of English Literature, my parents bought my reading list before term began to save me money. If possible, I would recommend this as the bookshop on Avenue campus is extremely over-priced and as a result is closing down to lack of customers.×

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.
