      Nightlife

      The SU Bar hosts a good selection of events throughout the year, my favourite being the weekly karaoke sessions but the nightlife within Ormskirk is rather nonexistent. However being only half an hour away from Liverpool, if nightlife is something you are looking for you shouldn't be too bad.

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.
