    I'm deciding among studying in Exeter, Bath and Nottingham. I'm wondering about a few things about Bath.

    1) How is campus life? Is joining clubs and societies enough for free time, are there many events we can attend?

    2) How's the quality of the course, are the lectures clear and helpful, and are you receiving enough help from the department? I reviewed this thread, can someone elaborate on actively getting help from the lecturers and tutors? Say, if I go to office hours and come in person, instead of emailing them.

    3) What's the workload and timetable like? How much time is spent in lectures, and how much are you studying on your own? Are the examinations hard?

    4) I am hoping to get employed after the three years spent in university, but I am from outside of Europe. What university out of the three is most likely to help me get employed in the financial area? (I do not have a placement year.) Pro Crastination said that Bath is probably the better choice, but how is your opinion with this? Have people around you found decent jobs?

    Any other additional information is appreciated.
