    • The downside

      How work is marked and assessed - only on academic work and not on practical work - practical work is just pass/fail

      The only place there really is to sit is the student union, but it's a helpful place to use for meetings etc. throughout the day.

      I live in a flat with a friend on the other side of the city. Personally, I wouldn't live with students from my university. I like to get away from it.

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.

More on what university league tables really tell you.

This institution doesn’t feature in any of the three main league tables, most likely because it’s small or specialist and there isn’t enough data to create a ranking. In a small number of cases some universities have opted out appearing in certain league tables.
