      I sook help as I was struggling financially and was told I was unable to access any as I did not qualify for the full maintenance grant as my fathers income was too high (around 28000). I did not receive any financial assistance from my parents whilst at university as they weren't in a position to give me any money. I had to open a second bank account to allow me to get an overdraft so I could afford to buy food and pay rent. My financial problems hindered my academic progress as I had to work most weekends to be able to afford to live. This turned into me having resits in the summer months and being unable to work so falling further into debt.

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.
