      The upside

      very close nit community, where the majority of people are from an agricultural backround therefore giving a large sense of family (although it also has its downsides - if you do something stupid/funny everyone will know within a couple of hours!!). Having the farm on campus does mean you can see everything in action not just sitting in a class room. Lots of support from lecturers and student support officers, so if any help or assistance is needed for anything they will help you. Great social life, always some thing going on, really have to work hard at the balance of work and social life as very easy to go out 5/6 nights a week.

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.
