The area is very small, quiet and rural. This makes it a nice environment to study in. There is a very diversity in societies on campus. There is a lot to do, and most of the societies focus on history×

The student accommodation here is pretty standard for university students. They certainly lived up to my expectations because my dad told me horror stories from his uni days where his sink was held up with a car jack, so upon entering the room I was pleasantly surprised to find the sink was intact. The best thing was that we all made great friends in our halls. The hall rooms are so close together, especially in Walker, that socializing is a huge part of the halls experience. Also you don't have to worry about rent, bills, or wifi because it's all included. The halls on campus are small and look a little run down. But in my opinion that is a huge part of the experience. No good story started alone; I still remember when our hall fought over the possession of a rock that was called Jeffery and was the main door stop. As far as I know, there are no worse halls. Walker hall when I was in my first year was known as the party hall, and me and my friends maintained that strongly, although it kind of has disappeared now. Other than that, it's mainly in jokes with the people that live there, or the current first years.×

The university has lots of green outdoor space so it is beautiful when it is sunny, when it is raining however there is only the sports hall which has to be booked in advance to be used. No common rooms in halls only kitchens to socialise in which can be annoying when you have six other hall mates who want to cook.×

Local nightlife is practically non-existant. Two to three pubs exist in the town, which are primarily used by locals, and offer very little to students.The only nightlife available is the University's own student union bar/nightclub on campus.The bar is open every night, and is usually fairly active, given the low student population. There are nightclub nights at least twice a week, but only bring forth amateur DJs from the student population itself.There are no nightclubs outside the Students Union, nor is there adequate late-night transport to be able to access nightclubs and other venues in other towns.There are no cinemas, theatres or music venues within the university town either.The university offers very little nightlife if you aren't interested in drinking in the same small bar and nightclub.×

Mainly lectures between 12 and 15 hours a week, if you struggle get help. Course wasnt very interesting for me as it can be quite repetitive but some people like that. Mainly Essays and if you are lucky exams. Feedback is usually good but if you dont know what the lecturers mean push it for an answer.×

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.
