A few of our modules aren't proving as useful and in some cases a complete waste of time and energy. Academic studies being one, with a teacher who thought enthusiastic who has no structure in her lessons and finds it hard to answer our questions, meaning certain things were confused in terms of understandings for the assignments. Also problem solving, which though useful, the assignments and feedback strategy have been chaotic, unhelpful and it has been very hard to discern what they wanted from us.×
Sandwich year placement, yet very nicely and surprisingly ive realised I will have to do it for FREE.Report
The library facilities are good as the librarians are co-operative and books are available majority of the time.Report
providing more facilities to pharmacy students such as course only study space and computer labs during term timeReport
very close to city center, facilities and very wide cutural rangesReport

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.
