What do the ratings tables mean?

If you look at the ratings for a particular uni – or compare ratings between unis – you will first see a table with a list of the ratings of all students combined. You will also see how many students have contributed ratings.

Scroll down, and you can see what rating each student has provided, and read their comments.

Ratings are provided from (the lowest) one to five (the highest) on about 20 different aspects of unis.
