    Course: International Business

    I mean, I know very little about that course or those unis. Off the top of my head I would say that they have a pretty equal reputation, but reputation and rankings can be based on all sorts of things, so it's not always helpful.

    When I was struggling to choose between two unis, I went and had a deeper look at the course, and looked up the modules I would be studying. Turns out that one of them had a way better choice of modules that interested me much more than the other course did. I've just had a quick look and Surrey list the modules available here http://www.surrey.ac.uk/undergraduat...ess-management. I can't find anything for Loughborough, but I know sometimes if you email departments they will send you a module list.

    Also, if you haven't already, you might want to visit the campus? Sometimes when you visit a uni you just know whether or not you would or would not fit in, and it can be really helpful to go and chat to students and professors to get their views.

    Other questions to consider could be:
    Whether you might want to be close to home or further away?
    Do you want to take part in any extra-curricular activities?
    What's the accommodation like?
    Is one more expensive? Would that be an issue?
    What's the nightlife like?

    I hope this helps a bit! Good luck making your decision!
