      Everyday expenses

      Easy to manage budgeting, local supermarkets are close, online food shopping means can look at total as going. Uni has cafes and you can use a food card for incase you don't have money on you. Lots of costas around Uni. Lots of part time work available, as in city centre, lots of shops a short walk away in retail, cafe work, waitering, bar work etc. lots of pubs in city centre. Don't need to spend much on travel as so close to town & Uni. Most course costs are 8.5k per year.

    • The downside

      Hold more sporting events at reasonable prices. i.e. keep the 6aside footy but not 5quid a person for half an hour.

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.
