The halls were better than I expected, as I had heard from friends at other universities that halls weren't good. The best aspect is probably the security in the hall itself and on campus as well as the location. There is someone in reception from about 7 in the morning until 12 at night, so there is always someone there to talk to if something goes wrong. There is 24/7 security on campus though so if you lose your keys on a night out there is always someone to call and they are very friendly and helpful. The worst aspect is probably the noise. Halls are very social and while this is good in freshers week and while you are getting to know people, it can be frustrating when you have a 9am and are woken at 3 in the morning by neighbours. However there are tutors in the hall who you can call if you are disturbed.Derby Hall is supposed to be a good hall with large rooms and wooden staircases, however all the halls are very similiar, and I would suggest looking at which buildings are used for your course and which halls are the closest.×

I have 24 hours of teaching a week, some of this is spent in labs and seminars, but it is mostly lecture based. The content of my course is very broad and gives an encompassing view of my field of study. I have coursework in the form of essays and reports, and exams, which are multiplre choice, short answer, or long answer questions. I receive feedback on all coursework and exams from my tutors upon request, which is helpful in identifying my weaknesses. My course has many facilities which facilitate my learning, mostly the use of labs and microbial analysis equipment.×

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.
