    The main reason they're 129th is because they're still quite new and therefore not that well known.

    The waterfront is really nice and so are majority of the people there. The uni itself isnt amazing but its alright.

    What course did you apply for? Also, how far away is the uni to you?

    History & Applied Sociology

    The university 3hrs away by car from me, but as I'm an independent it doesnt matter much.

    It's kinda either Man Met or Suffolk - the accomodation does look really great, its just the 70% female to male ratio and the low rankings which seem a bit jarring. Guardian did rate Suffolk above Man Met in my subject area.

    I live at home so im not sure what the accommodation is like. Have you been here before? The area is quite nice and town centre isnt far either.

    If it helps, I actually had a sociology module and the two sociology lecturers i had were really good at teaching. They were enthusiastic and made lectures interesting.

    In terms of the 70% female to male ratio, i didnt even know until you said. Tbh you dont really notice it.

    Hi Meva - the University of Suffolk is a relatively new institution. We were established in 2007 with our degrees previously being accredited by UEA and Essex. We achieved University status last year in August and because of this the league tables do not reflect our data since becoming a fully independent university.

    There are a number of other important measures to use when choosing to study at a University. For Suffolk these include:
    14th in the UK for academic experience (according to the THE Student Experience Survey 2017)
    22 best university in the UK as voted for by students in the Whatuni Student Choice Awards (2017)
    95% of our graduates are in work or further study six months after graduating (DLHE survey, students who graduated in 2016)
    10 courses ranked top in the UK NSS 2017


    It is a very confusing area when looking at the different league tables to compare Universities. When I chose to study at Suffolk the University did not even appear in any league tables! So I looked at more at sites like WhatUni which gave reviews of the University written by current students.

    I lived in Athena Hall whilst I studied at the University of Suffolk and would thoroughly recommend it. Its on campus and it is really easy to make friends in there.

    The interview was 3 seperate stations. As long as you know your personal statement and the skills of a radiographer you'll be fine.
