    The university is currently going on quite a grade hike, so numbers have dropped as the entry requirements have risen. It'll even out and go back up over the next few years.

    Good time to be applying there though!

    I thought that might be a reason why. Are you a current student?

    Definitely. I can't speak much about the courses other than chemistry, but the quality of teaching, and also the facilities has always been top notch. They'll easily justify AAB, and the grades will most likely be AAA next year, possibly rising the year after as well, so it can only carry on getting better really.

    Other than petty complaints, there's never really been anything worth complaining about to be honest!

    Can some one advise me on which Band D option is better? The pictures on the website don't look that clear, and they don't show the en suite rooms for some areas...

    As far as I know, the only choices you will get for band D rooms are either on campus, or manor park (forget hazel farm, even if you get offered it). The rooms at manor park are a little nicer, they're newer and have electronic keys to the rooms, but other than that they're roughly the same size and have all the same equipment in. The downside is that they're 15 minutes away from campus (less on the bus), so I'd always go with the on campus option personally.

    why would you chose off campus?
    (Original post by KingGoonIan)
    I stayed there a few times with my mate and liked it a lot. Although it's "off campus" it's only about 5-10mins walk and is closer to Tesco and the Hospital (where I hope to be on placement) than the campus.

    Also will be quieter.

    I wouldn't count on it being quieter, most of the noise comes from people within your halls, as people walking past don't tend to hang around long. So it all depends if you get unlucky with a noisy flat.

    As for being closer to tescos it's only a few minutes difference, and I wouldn't say it makes up for having to walk 15 minutes to and from campus every time you need to go to a lecture or anything.

    It's just across the field though and as for the noise I meant by business.
