      The downside

      The way that the teacher treat you. I'm a disabled student and I just didn't get the support that was needed from my tutors. The disability and student services department is amazing, but without the help of the tutors, it doesn't make a difference. I found the tutors treated me very differently and therefore I have had to change course because of it. The fact that you are discouraged from going to the student union when you are bullied, despite how severely. I had hoped this would stop by the time I got to university, but apparently not. I was ignored in all my attempts to fix the situation. Last of all, the facilities available for my course (Hospitality Management) were non-existent, meaning the students had to travel quite far out of the way to partake in any of the catering elements of the course.

      The amount of teaching hours and creativity facilities available were particularly disappointing.

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.
