      Feedback isn't as good as I'd like, we don't do mock exams etc. Teaching is great!

      The course has been a bit of a rollercoaster if I'm honest, last year was really good and I felt I was well supported however last semester was quite bad because the department just had so many different organisational and logistical problems leading to a bad experience for that semester. This semester has been fine so far though

      It's such a hassle looking for a suitable house and contacting the landlords and viewing it with my friends.

      It just made me slightly more stressed sometimes so it's not a big issue.

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.
