When it comes to choosing which university to go to finding the one that’s going to give you the best education can be hard work. Although asking past students and reading reviews will give you some idea everyone has a different experience at university and what works for one person might not work for you.
Another way of narrowing down the choices is to look at the university league tables. League tables rank universities using scores for everything from student satisfaction to which university city has the best night life. Most league tables also give the universities an overall score which helps to decide its final place in the rankings.
