      Some halls (kingswood) are cut of from the rest of campus and do not have enough facilities nearby (shops, clubs etc.)

      The downside

      Libraries and IT facilities become strained during exam period. Not much of a nightlife apart from the Student's Union functions 2/3 times a week. Despite having different themes though, they more often than not turn out to be very similar experiences.

      The downside

      There is a low turnout to events on campus (even the awesome sounding ones!) as there is a lack of good advertisement of what is going on, sometimes you have to properly search for things to do and then find loads that they never tell you about! Also, it is quite expensive on campus, and the SU nights are overpriced!

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.
