    So title pretty much says it all I'm doing comp sci and maths and one of these two massively different unis is going to be my insurance. I've been to visit both and still cant decide Sheffield is better at computing and Loughborough better at maths and any personal experience/advice is great!

    I might be biased but I'd say go for Sheffield, it's a much more interesting city. Loughborough has a bit of a reputation for being very sporty, which to some people might be a problem and I've even had friends who are quite sporty themselves and they found it too much.

    Both are pretty top unis however if you wanna go into maths physics or sport then i would say loughborough. As i wanted to do law loughborough was never an option as they dont offer it. They are both quite near and on the same trainline, my mate keeps wanting to come up to sheffield to visit haha
