A main promotion company that offer a range of nights out during the week. Very similar music and similar atmosphere. Best to not go out Saturday or Sunday night as the clubs do not have the nicest feel. Liquid is great as it is roomy but the main nights happen in Astoria×

It is very easy to manage costs, if you don't go out every night! You quickly learn money saving tips - Eat value basic food, buy textbooks before term starts on the internet or through your facebook course page. Buy a 16-25 railcard - saves 1/3 on trips back home! Try and apply for part time work before term starts - when term starts there will be a rush for part time work!×

Political Groups: Political Union (mainly debates), Labour, Conservatives, Young Greens, Amnesty International, Feminism, Palestinian Solidarity There are a lot of demos going on every now and again, the student number attending those is very low though, but it is on the up rise. There are a couple of students who organise demos. I'm quite involved in that part of the university and I wouldn't say it shows in the University, but if you know and join the right people, there's definitely something going on. The UPSU, the union, is politically set up. You vote for who you want, they have to run for positions, attend interviews, have manifestos and podium speeches. There is a societies council, every decision there is made democratically.×

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.
