The number of contact hours for the type of course is relatively low, we don't have individual time with personal tutors either, but I believe that's something the university is working on. The content varies between being interesting to not so interesting, however when you're told 'you won't need to know this for the exam, but you will need to know it for the pub quiz on the field trip' you start to question the assessment methods of the lecturer involved. One of the better things of the course is the varied types of assessments were given, its not all exams, there is quote a bit of coursework, and only a couple of essays. The results of these courseworks however can take a very long time to get back to you. In fact were told 3 weeks turn around, but ive been waiting between 5-6 weeks several times. Getting time I'm labs is great, but we only seem to do this if we've got coursework on the topic, and then these seem to be rushed 1 hour sessions, where not much is actually explained to us.×

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.
