    • The downside

      There is only one nightclub to go to. The town itself doesn't have much to do and going to London all the time can be expensive.

      Very limited in places to go locally off campus so there is no local nightlife/life so weekends at uni are generally very quiet with only Friday nights at the Forum being the main event

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.
