Stress levels among students are very high and the university and colleges are often not very sympathetic to extenuating circumstances, nor do they provide sufficient information or support for eg. mental health issues.×

We're spoilt for choice when it comes to social spaces at university. Every college has a JCR where you can watch TV/hang out with your friends without needing to buy anything, and the university parks are perfect for socialising in the summer. On top of that, there is a huge university sports complex, various arts venues, and even the libraries have cafes attached.×
Park end after matches on Wednesday is good.Report

Usually, you have two hours of lectures per module, per week, as well as a tutorial (or in later years, a class) in which you go over that week's problem sheet. Occasionally there will be computing practicals. The course is very different to A-Level Maths, but very interesting, especially when you start to choose your optional modules. There is a full range of Pure and Applied modules, as well as modules from Statistics and from Computer Science, and 3rd and 4th years can choose to write a dissertation instead of one of the exams. Almost all of the work set is in the form of problem sheets. The sheets usually start with easier questions, to help you learn the basics, then move on to harder questions which really test your understanding of the material covered in lectures. In the tutorial or class you receive your marked answers and the tutor goes over the questions, focussing on the ones that you found most difficult. This is your chance to ask questions, if you didn't understand something in the lectures, or would like the tutor to explain something. If the problem sheet went well, this is the chance to explore the material more deeply, or talk about related topics. This year the new Maths Institute will open, so the whole Maths faculty will be in the same building. This is where undergraduates will have lectures and classes, and there will be spaces designed for meetings and collaborative work.×

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.
We’ve pinpointed the key sites where teaching takes place. Check in the smallprint of the course you’re interested in to see where exactly you’d be based, especially if there are multiple locations spread across a wide area.
