Once your are studying, your course should fit with your life. Your dreams will start taking shape with every successfully assignment . If you are committed, your teachers will become your friends , if you read and are keen to contribute in seminars, your academic skills will rise and by the minute you become stronger and more confident and you will feel that the world is at your feet. Recommend strongly to try at least one extra curriculum activity. The mooting, if you study law is quite challenging .×

Hours of teaching/contact were reduced during the third year, including the removal of workshops led by phd students. Some lecturers were not as inspiring as others; some lecturers were not able to respond to student queries (particularly with the later pure maths courses); final exams were crammed into 2 weeks this year (has been 3 weeks in previous years), which noticeably increased the pressure. The shift towards privatising campus services caused unhappiness amongst students.×
There is a lot less contact time than at a-level which means it is up to you to manage work.Report

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.
