      the woodlane library is of a good resource, fairly large considering it is arts specific mainly, the computer suites are good with a range of pcs macs and scanners printers, but they could do with a few more. I wish i used the library resources more at the beginning of the year, they could do with better facilities for sport, but the teams are divrerse.

      The library is amazing and is open 24 hours a day 7 days a week, so whatever time you want to study or get some quiet time, it is available. The computer labs are good and always running, however at hand in time it does get a little crowded, but people are courteous. the media centre, in particular, has exceptional facilities and friendly staff. The fxu and stannery bar are also very good, constantly offering events nights and fun things 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.
