      Facilities

      There are a number of computers in the library, but there are times when it is too busy, however the LRC (downstairs) is still usually available. Since the renovation of the Luton Campus, walk throughs between the buildings have made travelling between different lecture rooms etc. much easier. As the number of students start to increase, access to the labs is not as good as it was when I first started. The careers centre has staff that are there to help, but they are only willing to talk to you for around 10 minutes and it can be quite difficult to organise an appointment. There is a wide range of books available, but this can still be problematic when there is a large number of students completing one particular module, especially when trying to do assignments. On the other hand, there is e-books that can be read online (both on and off-campus), as when as the ability to request books and journals from the British Library, although this can take up to 10 working days to arrive! Some inconsistencies in marking of assignments, although this may become rectified as the newer members of staff become more accustomed to marking etc.

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.
