      Academic Experience

      amount/ type of teaching you have each week is roughly 20 plus hours The content of the course covers a wide range of topics and is interesting and challenging. There are a number of essays, exams and practicals to complete each semester. Tutors offer good prompt feedback. Course facilities are very good and you get the opportunity to meet other students on a field trip right at the beginning of the first week. Where you socialize and complete some field work while away.

      Facilities

      my particular university although I never really explored it does have an extensive library and extensive pc's more than enough for students to use there could have been a few more cafe's/restaurants to choose from as these were limited.

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.
