    I am choosing between bath and lancaster, bath sounds to be a better choice coz it is of better reputation and stuffs. it gives me an offer as early as october after i hv sent my application for a few days....
    can bath applicants or bath students tell me more about the accomodation fee or business courses, as well as rankings of bath???
    talking about rankings, i hv searched for like a million times, and i feel like"wt?!" when bath is like one hunred and sth on the world uni ranking....so yea can anyone tell me more

    Have a look on the University of Bath site because there is loads of information on there about accommodation costs and living costs in Bath. There is also a lot of information about what is available in the City.

    DD considered Bath and Lancaster and loved both campuses. Bath wanted higher grades though - in the end Bath was first choice because she felt she liked the City better than Lancaster and it was also easier to get to London, Birmingham and Southampton for flights.

    Lancaster offers accommodation throughout your course I believe, whereas in Bath you have to move out into a house/flat.

    You really need to have a good look around the sites - don't focus on prestige - focus on course content and select on that basis.

    idk but the reason why i like bath more than warwick is because of its tuition fee......and the placement of course.
    warwick is better in terms of reputation tho....

    I think you're more likely to do better in your studies if you love where you study rather than studying somewhere due to its reputation. That extra reputation of Warwick will only go so far to help your future.

    LOL... surely will do.... We will celebrate in style :cool: ... My treat!!!

    Yep ... i also have applied for the BBA at Bath and Bsc. managemnt at Warwick!!!

    Hmmm we both are riding in the same boat... i too hav the same confusion as u.... i guess its better if u dont take any decisions now ... wen will u get ur results for the public exam..... if u can wait .... den u can see if u hav fuflfilled ur conditions for warwick n den take a decision....

    I'm goin to meet a counsellor in a few hours n will be bak in like 4-5 hours.... I'll post all the details of our conversation over here .. maybe that mite help u!!!

    Yeh prestige wise warwick is better but the placement year will really boost ur job prospects in the future as a n employer would really chek the skills u hav gained and not the prestige of your uni!!!
