Tutors are very knowledgable about their area of expertise and most do well in explaining/teaching their subject. Questions are encouraged and you are not made to feel stupid if you don't understand. They are very good at motivating you and spurring you on when you think you want to give up. They are supportive when times outside of uni are hard. My Mum was in an accident and on life support and I missed an exam. The tutor for that subject gave up a lot of her own time to help me and others who had either missed it for their own reasons or had failed the exam the first time round. Most tutors will go the extra mile to help you.×

The facilities at the university are outstanding. Libraries stay open the majority of hours so it's easy to study at quieter times. Many resources are available in many different topics.×

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.
