overall, the contact hours of the course are relatively low, but the expected hours of work outside these hours are high and as a result the course and lifestyle is stressful in order to achieve the top grades. Its all about the hours you put in and the quantity and standard of work expected are high. Feedback and teaching quality is high, with tutors typically being invested in you and the grades you achieve and willing to help and cater to yours needs.×

i live in a neighbourhood not that popular with students as it is relatively further out from the university than most of my friends, we decided to live here based on the accommodation costs as they were lower however travelling into uni has in turn made it balance out. WE are relatively well connected by bus 91 and tube from finsbury park or archway however we sit right in the middle of the tubes stations so it is roughly a 20 minute walk either way×

my university provides me with support through personal tutors however due to the nature of my course it isn't possible for me to have a part time job which would aid my financial situation, as having a part time job would be detrimental to my studies and grades in the long term.×
Really good as my course needs a lot of contact hours and that's what we have and we get a lot of help on our studies as wellReport
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.
