      I did not seek advice from anyone at university. Just speak to my parents.

      Course

      The content has been varied but a lot of the time the lectures feel slightly soul-destroying in how uninteresting they can be. The practical stuff has been somewhat basic (the video/audio modules) whilst the more academic modules have been very dry, and an unreasonably high expectation on how quickly we must grasp certain concepts, though the reporting and writing class has stood out as the best. I was placed in a language class below my capability because they simply did not want to run an advanced class. I can't wait for next year so at least I have more choice over what I get to do.

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.
