      Everyday expenses

      The university tends to cover the cost of trips, so go on as many as possible! Definitely have to be careful with money as it is easy to spend money on eating out and drinking as you are having a good time with friends - I took food with me to uni to cut the costs of buying it and therefore had money for going out!

      The downside

      Tutor groups too big (not enough room in sessions), tutors don't have enough time to spend with students if requested, uni gym opening times are poor and it is expensive, not enough gym/execises classes or organised sport (eg five a side, netball at lunchtimes), nothing for mature students - social and sporting activitiy geared up to younger students.

    • The downside

      Some lecturers have taken time out for their own research and their replacements have not always been top notch.

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.
