Application deadline details:
Carlisle is not the party capital of the UK – if you’re looking to drink your student loan away, you’ll find it difficult here! What you get instead is a lovely small town, and a small student body. This means you’ll really connect with everyone here, and your teachers can really devote their attention to you and help with your degree. The lectures and seminars are also really cosy, and tutors will often encourage debate between you and your class, which for will really help with the learning and fostering of ideas.

I would rate it a 4. I like a small environment as I can't handle things that are too big but obviously if you like a big, vibrant campus with so many thousands of people maybe consider somewhere else. The smaller campus does mean you get more one to one contact with tutors. The resources your able to get through the university systems are really good and helpful.
