The department work really hard at varying the tasks we do, for example one assignment required us to be part of a psychology conference delivering our findings in posters as opposed to writing up another report. This is much needed, however the print shop on site were very disorganised. Lectures are great most of the time but many students often think the seminars are a waste of time. I think that i learn most in the seminars without realising as i consolidate what i was taught in the lecture - even if they can be quite dry. Feedback and online submission is necessary and mostly well used. Some universities are still asking for paper submissions which makes no sense in this time!×
lab work, working in groups etcReport

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.
