      Academic Experience

      As an English student, I only have 8 contact hours a week. I would prefer to have more, but lectures and seminars are usually interesting and stimulating. The work load is not excessive - much of my independent work consists of reading, which I enjoy, so I have plenty of free time. Approximately one essay is set per module per term (both unassessed and assessed). Essay feedback is usually prompt and useful. Course-specific facilities could be a lot better - my department does not receive the same attention/funding as many of the others.

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.
