      Accomodation

      I live just by uni, there will be more students here in a year or so but now it's fairly quiet residential, its very close to uni and cheaper than halls. Aldi 10 mins away, bus stop 3 mins away, I would live here again, i lived here for 4 years so far.

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.
