It is completely student dominated unlike cities so when you are out you know you are out with fellow students which means clubs cater to that, there is some sort of night on every night at various different clubs. There arent a huge array of clubs, dont expect the nightlife of a big city or the low drink prices but its better than most.×

The amount of teaching we have a week is between 12 and 16 hours. Its generally relatively laid back, but obviously as long as you attend your lectures you will do well. My course is challenging and this year has been relatively difficult, but I have enjoyed my course so far. Even if you don't, see it through because in year two you have much more choice on what modules you can do. There are quite a large number of essays, I did about 10 and they are very different from 'school' essays. They are marked much harsher, and are quite difficult to get a first on. The exams are also much harder than what you would expect. You always receive good feedback from tutors about your work and how you are doing so you always know where you have gone wrong.×

There is a variety of shops, so you can always keep your budget down, joining clubs at the beginning of the year can get a bit expensive as new students always want to join many clubs. Limit yourself to 1 or 2 and you will have time to go to them and not waste money×

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.
