The social facilities are mainly two pubs/bars on campus, and if you're not a big drinker there are few other places on campus to just hang out and sit. The food places on campus have a good price range but the quality is not always the best in my opinion - so I prefer to eat at places around the campus of which there are many. The campus really lacks any place to just hang out and not to study - there are no common rooms for undergraduate study. The library especially is always full and quite noisy - but from this year there has been improvement in this aspect with the introduction of the different 'zones' of noise. But it is still difficult to find a quiet place to study in the whole campus. In addition, the library has a system of only giving 3 day loans which is quite inconvenient for those living at home especially.×

Some of the teachers aren't great and don't make the classes very informative or interesting, and it's not a very sociable university - you have to make a real effort to make friends×

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.
