      The rating provided is definitely not a dig at the university, but more just an accurate statement of how financially tough it is for students at the moment. The cost of living crisis means that the rising prices of things like food and accomodation do really take a toll on students. With jobs hard to come by it can be very difficult to stay financially confident. I definitely feel like as students we need more financial help from the government, etc.
