The Virgin Alternative Guide To British Universities has become a classic of its field since it was first published in 1996. Conceived to give vent to the student voice, it is the insider's guide to everything you need to know before choosing a university or college. With unrivalled nightlife and city guides, The Virgin Alternative Guide was the first guide to include independent, course-by-course teaching assessments. It was also the first to show which universities serve which job markets best. With the cutting of student grants and introduction of tuition fees and student loans, The Virgin Alternative Guide to British Universities uncovers every aspect of university life in terms of value - not just rents and cost of living, but teaching quality, student satisfaction and where your course will lead you.
