Description

The Virgin 2012 Guide to British Universities is the only university guide to offer a uniquely students' eye view of what it's like to study at a particular university. As well as hard facts and practical information on every UK university - such as official ratings for teaching, statistics on where graduates end up and employment prospects by subject - the guide is also packed with useful information such as what the social scene is like, how much living costs are likely to be and what the student profile at a particular university is really like. With a comprehensive entry on every UK university, The Virgin Guide to British Universities contains all the information and advice potential undergraduates will need to choose the best university for them.show more
