    • The downside

      Bus routes (they aren't bad but are expensive and I feel not value for money)

      Nightlife

      From the university to the city centre and onward, there is no shortage of quiet pubs, safe clubs, and everything in between. The Golden Triangle, where a lot of students live in their second year and above, has a bunch of great locals including The Garden House and The Rose Tavern. There are loads of small and large gig spaces, even on campus. The cost of a drink isn't bad, average 3.60 for a pint in town.

      Accommodation

      Did not live up to expectations; they are due to be refurbished this summer though so I feel we got the rough end of the deal in living with what we have. No oven: only a microwave combination scenario which isn't the best. Best aspect is shower pod; it's really useful, worst aspect is kitchen as appliances are limited. Certain halls in university village are better as they've been refurbished so are better value for money and nicer to live in. Pine is right at the back of the village so it's not really known for being the best as it's the furthest from campus so is a bit annoying to walk there.

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.
