I had no problems. Work out how much money you have to spend and split that by how many weeks you are uni for. Then don't spend over that each week. Easy.×

The student union is a great place to hang out both in the day time as they have a nice beer garden and serve cheap burgers and sandwiches all day and in the evening having a drink inside the bar with friends. Skint Saturdays is an event run by the Waterhole Bar as many of the local night club facilities are taken over by the locals and prices are hiked up. No need to worry about spending too much as you can get a pint for under 2! There is also a large space upstairs in the union known as 3rd Space which is suitable for group work or catching up with a friend and you can buy Starbucks coffee for a reduced price! There are a number of University cafes situated around campus serving cheap coffee and sandwiches which are made to order and you can select a number of fillings for a cheap lunch. These are also a great place to go between lectures. It would be great to have more outdoor spaces or common rooms that you didn't have to pay for food and drink because if they're busy it's difficult to find a space.×

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.
