      It's difficult but there is plenty of help available.

      Accomodation

      Wanted a flat for only 2 people, one bedroom (a couple). Know that most student accommodation here are for 4-10 people, so knew it would be a struggle. Started by walking into estate agents as online properties was limited. Found a place the same day, viewing 2 days later, paid £100 fee the same day as viewing and had whole process done by the end of jan!

      Emailed the mental health support service provided by uni and never got a reply. Unacceptable.

      I thought there would be far more contact hours, the number of lectures is disappointing. Due to the strikes there has been even less contact hours which I think will have a negative impact on exam results. When there is teaching the quality is excellent and the subjects covered are interesting. Lots of the courses are done by professors and Drs, which I feel greatly benefits us as it helps that they know what they are talking about and gives us the idea of what subjects we may like to specialise in.

      The university offers mental health services especially focused on finance, but I am not in a bad enough situation to need help.

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.
