On my course the atmosphere is very casual and is designed to provoke discussions. We learn alot about self-awareness and concentrate on growing as an individual. My course is centred mainly around reflective writing, portfolios and only one exam at the end of the third year. We recieve indepth feedback form tutors with helpful hints on where we could improve. We have counselling suitable facilities to keep confidentiality in skills practice sessions.×

More student union events, rarely meet people outside of my course which I find disappointing. The gender balance is strange, it can often feel like I am studying at an all-girls college!×
Large series of sporting societies and group activities. Eg. Circuits, dance, tennis, rowing, rugby...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.
