      Academic Experience

      the teaching hours were good. some subjects didn't seem necessary to have 3 hour lectures such as fundamentals of clinical assessments. the amount of exams and essays are good for the first year to help you get used to it. My course specific facilities were great as they had everything we need for the first year.

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.
