    Hi I'm new on here so not sure if this is the right place!Basically I'm having so much trouble choosing a university to study at!Originally, I wanted to be a primary school teacher, so my first choice would have been Canterbury Christ Church, Primary Education with QTS. When I visited the university, it didn't seem that 'great'. I visited Anglia Ruskin in Chelmsford, for Education and Childhood Studies, and the environment was amazing. I much preferred the university itself. However, if I go to Anglia Ruskin, I won't get a QTS and will have to do an extra year for a PGCE BUT Anglia Ruskin would mean I would not be tied down to teaching, I would be able to pursue a career in different sectors of education, from teaching to psychology to government and more. Here's what really gets me- everyone knows Canterbury. Everyone loves it as far as I know. But when I mention Anglia Ruskin nobody has even heard of it half the time?!Sorry it's a bit of a long read... Thanks 😊
