1st year. It was not challenging me at all due to the low evel of the assesments. I feel like 2nd year has been better, particularly the last essay we had. It demands critical thinking, which is what university is all about. Furthermore, the general communication at university is not handled very well. Some of the staff can be very difficult to get in touch with, or simply misinform you. There is an overall lack of organisation.×

First year halls of residence in Caledonian Court is a good starting point for any student leaving home for the first time. The flats are clean and the bedroom size is decent. Buchanan View however is slightly more spacious.×
There is a drama society, choir and hand crafts but nothing really musical like an orchestra.Report
Has fashion and theatre societiesReport

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.
