Due to living in middle of nowhere Wales, the rent is cheap in and out of uni accomadation. There is also a sainsbury's where you can get all your food at a decent price. There isn't much in the way of part-time work becuase it is a small town. Some books are expensive and there is often a lot on the expected reading list but the library always has a couple in stock so you should just pick a couple of books off the list and go to the library for the rest.×

first year residence halls differ by building some are quite bad and not well maintained, yet others are more up to date and more comfortable. flats in the local area tend to be very good, town houses are large and spacious, some say its too good for students. Though nearby accommodation can be in short supply at times with the new influx of students.×
The University is very accessible and good for those students who dont desire the "club" scene of the university lifestyle.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.
