      Student Union

      The student union has recently been done up, and looks fab! There are more events on in there now than there was last year, "raves" with glow paint, pub quiz and even live music. They also have a lot of other events like vintage fairs and meditation classes, so it's worth to keep an eye out!

      The downside

      Support for students is quite poor, students need more contact hours, some departments need better facilities, Some ethnic groups are fully catered for - but my ethnic group is not very welcome at the University.

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.
