      Everyday expenses

      Do not go out and buy all the required books for reading. If you feel you could benefit from a book, try it out at the library first. I found there was hardly enough time to read over lectures, never mind five books per module.

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.
