Final year option modules vary in assessment from 100% course work to 100% exams.

    University seems to have a keen interest in student welfare. Very good support systems in place and a focus on making sure students are coping, not just about grades. Amazing social life, best, local and cheap nightlife. Interesting modules with great lecturers.
