    Hi guys I was wondering whether it really makes that big of a difference on what university you attend. I got accepted at both university of Bradford and university of Birmingham for electrical engineering and was just deciding if it really makes a difference.

    find the two courses you've been accepted to
    'choose up to 3 to compare'
    have a look at the national student surveys, satisfaction etc
    consider your 'feelings' of both universities when you went there

    no matter what course you go onto, there will be people who love it and hate it, so dont take an individuals opinion into account! (unless like 30 people all say its horrible)

    They're both very good uni's, you should go with the one you prefer, but from what I've seen , I think Birmingham would be a better choice

    Depends on the overall experience: modules, area, accomodation available, employability etc thats what I'd look for anyway.

    Well what do you want? A research led university in the top 30 in the UK, member of the Russell group and hence nationally recognised as a good university, or Bradford?

    Guardian places Birmingham 17th for Electrical/Electronic and City university 18th. Both are good places to be.

    Because I have to do a foundation year (I didn't do the subjects required) does it matter if I do the foundation year in one uni and then do the actual degree in another? For example of I did the foundation in Bradford and start the first year in Birmingham or vice versa
