University is not like school, you will not be told of for not going or chewing gum in class. you are treated as a true adult and have to take the responsibility which goes along with that. The work is challenging and interesting without being overly difficult, although some essays will be on the dullest subjects ever.×

The campus is a nice size with pretty good facilities. Student union offers a variety of activities. They also have a fabulous market once a week selling really good quality produce from fruit, veg to cakes. They also have a charity visit regularly who offer free push bike checks & they put on different events on campus to encourage people to cycle to work.×

I am doing adult nursing degree and it is very hard. You have to complete 50% of your time over three years in the classrooms and 50% in practice. We complete two 11 weeks placements a year and this is alongside various essays, exams and presentations. You need to be able to manage your time well. Feedback from tutors is great and you can also get great help from Cfap and the academic librarians. Aside from this the other tutors are great and you get a lot of support from your personal academic tutor as well. I have thoroughly enjoyed my first year and made lots of great friends and we all support each other through everything×

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.
