      Could listen to Stafford Campus more. Sometimes it feels like we're a different uni.

      The downside

      Does depend on what sport team you join to determine how much support you get from the union. As a member of the lacrosse team, as it is a small team that is only just starting out really we don't always get the full support from the union as compared to the american football team who actually use our pitch to play on yet they get priority for games even though we own the pitch.

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.
