      Course

      Course is structured well, however, with some careful arrangement of assignments and exams the course could be completed in 3, if not 2, years instead of 4. Content is very basic for the first 3 years with very little variation in teachings and a lot of repetition. Only until 4th year does it begin to get interesting, but even then the options we have are dull. Teaching quality varies between absolutely abysmal and constructive and helpful. Some lecturers genuinely care about the student, and then others don’t. Feedback is also quite varied. Sometimes can be very generic which isn’t helpful, and it’s not in great depth. I also fully believe feedback should be given for written exams- there currently is no feedback at all for exams.

      Accomodation

      Halls itself isn’t the nicest place to be living, however every person has an ensuite bathroom, and there is plenty storage space. The room is a bit depressing, but if there’s ever a maintenance issue it’s not long before the issue is fixed, the rooms are good enough quality for a halls. Kitchen is spacious, not a lot of storage options, but comfy enough couches. Area is nice for walking or running. Not too far from shops either

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.
