      Nightlife

      There are many pubs, clubs and speakeasy type venues nearby, however it can be quite a long walk, as the university itself is slightly out of the way of the main university and the real student area, so a taxi is probably needed for most.

      Facilities

      Honestly, I myself have never been in the Student Union in this College. None of my friends attend the same University as me, so I really only be in College the days and times I need to be. From what I've heard, the College has a small gym, but it's nothing too fancy or impressive. The facilites for Science and Technology are excellent. The College cafe sells nice food for an excellent price and cater to all needs, including vegeterian options. There is no proper 'Common Room' as such, the only option is to use an empty room or sit in the small coffee shop in the building. The library has a few seats outside it with a vending machine, but that's about 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.

Where it's located

We’ve pinpointed the key sites where teaching takes place. Check in the smallprint of the course you’re interested in to see where exactly you’d be based, especially if there are multiple locations spread across a wide area.
