I wouldn't say anything has exceeded expectation. However, i will confess it does well on the social nights out. What is a small town and fairly quiet, they try to make a fun and enjiyable student atmosphere.×

The student union runs events pretty much every day of the week with a wide range including films, clubbing, quizzes. In freshers week there are events to get to know other students like ghost walks and trips to local attractions. The student union venue is modern and provides a range of food as well as a safe place to have fun!×

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.×
The fact it is a small university you really get the sense of being an individual instead of 'just another student'Report

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.
