The quality of the accommodation is excellent, far exceeding what I saw at most other universities. My room looked very pleasant and didn't give off a cheap feel, which I certainly appreciated, also giving lots of storage space and large communal areas.I only wished it was a little closer to the actual university.×
So close to the Peak District that it's the best place for all outdoor sports.Report

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.
