      The upside

      The University of Winchester works very well in a small scale, every person you talks to knows who to contact and so the student is always the main focus and priority. Although being a small university, the teaching is very high standard, and the lecturers are eager to help anyone who needs it. A great student body, everyone is friendly and respectful of one another. Equipment (library, computer etc) are excellent, always being improved to help students needs. Great focus on what the student wants, Winchester are eager to please!

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.
