The student's union building is compact. The bar is adequate, but can get crowded. The extension - where most events are held - is a bit of a shed but is serviceable enough. The sports facilities - well, who knows? The new sports hall was due to re-open in the Spring of 2012, which has long since sprung. We can only hope it is ready for the start of the new academic year. The on-campus cafe is fine, if expensive for a student establishment, and is usually busy. Some students do a lot of work there. There is lots of green space but no real indoor meeting area away from lecture rooms and the bar. The library is a pleasant building with very helpful staff and there are a lot of e-resources, but this does not disguise the absence of core texts and books. The university has spent money improving its communal spaces between the Arts Hall and Refectory, but the improvements do tend to look like the Vice Chancellor has gone round sticking MDF up over the 1970's/80's crumbling brick facades.×

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.×

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.
