    • Academic Experience

      Good lecturers - easy to talk to. Seminars are small, so good one to one time with lecturer. Course is hard but very interesting.

    • The upside

      Lecturers are good as they have a wide knowledge of programs and errors that might come up with your work.

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.
