Study abroad opportunities. My university advertised studying abroad in America as an amazing opportunity and then when I signed on for it, the administration took months, there was little communication and what was communicated was inaccurate. I ended up returning home after only two weeks abroad with even more debt and rather than be invited to the talk promoting study abroad to give accurate detailed information, I wasn't invited- possibly for fear I'd give a negative review.×
Not easy at all-- I'd recommend saving as much as you can before uniReport

The library has a large range of books for all subjects and they have an easy online system to help you locate books and also to renew books without having to go back to the library. There are also things scattered around campus that help you locate where there are any free computers. The university of winchester has the learning cafe, which is a great place to do group work as you can talk and bring your laptop (or use on of the many computers) and there is also a cafe at the back if you need to work over lunch time. I do psychology, so I know the psychology labs and resource rooms are too a very high standard and have all the equipment you need.×

I have 12 hours of teaching a week plus around the same amount at home studying in order to get relevant information for my course. One half of my combined course is amazing, they give powerpoint, extra information, worksheets and book support as well as regular one to ones if you need support. The other hand seem to do the bare minimum and just read from powerpoint slides and their assessments seem to be lacking in any thought or detail and it actually feel demeaning to the course. We have presentations, posters, essays, guides, exams and reports to write for the courses and often they're group work. This can cause a bit of issue as I often like to get work done quickly as I have additional knowledge through work but other people in my group might not do the work to the same standard and we all end up losing marks, or they hand in work so late that we cannot check or proof read it and it ends up being atrocious.In one subject we get feedback during one to ones and can always ask for help but none of the tutors give real feedback on assignments, they just give brief examples of where it went wrong but at that point unless you need to redo an assignment, it's too late.×

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.
