The student union and bar are a decent size and are always hosting events. I have heard that the cyber cafe is really good and also the union cafe. Students can meet up in the library as well, as there is a cafe/computer area located downstairs which is extremely handy for working on group projects.×

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.
