      The downside

      My course layout, here throughout the summer, and how our particular cohort or group has had to wait much longer than the rest of the cohort to find out information, maybe because we are so small.

    • Nightlife

      Lots of pubs and clubs, the clubs by the train station are more expensive. The pubs just across the road from uni are ok

      Facilities

      The school caf is great, a nice range of food to choose from every day for lunch, and the bar serves yummy curly fries. There are plenty of places to meet up with your friends without having to buy anything, and there are plenty of places to relax outside if it's good weather. As for sports, the gym is well equipped and simple to join, though a little hard to find at first. There's a climbing frame, sports clubs and a court for tennis/badminton, and gym memberships give you access to the pool as well - though the pool isn't located in the University, and you'll have to travel out about a 20 minutes drive to get there. The students union seems to advertise 5 events that go on each week, though I don't know if they're very good or not as I'm not interested in going out and getting pissed with strangers. If you are though, remember your I.D, you'll probably need it if you order anything during the day.

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.
