    Bristol or Durham? I'm torn between the two Unis and would appreciate your reasons for picking one over the other. Thank you.

    You should focus on the location - do you prefer the city lifestyle that Bristol offers or the smaller town feeling of Durham?

    I picked the former because I was not going to spend 3 years in a town of 50k people - if you think you'd prefer that, however, Durham may be the option to go.

    Is there any other difference between the two Unis? in terms of the teaching, reputation with the employers? Which has a more rigorous course?

    I definitely love the city life but I'm quite scared to base my decision purely on that!
    If there is anything else I should/ could consider?
    Thanks!

    So what other factors, if any, should I consider?
    Also, will the teaching standards differ substantially?
    Which would you choose and why?

    Thanks!

    Yes. Look at the list of sponsors on the Warwick finance societies (which houses the Warwick commercial law society) website. Most of my LinkedIn network at Warwick atm have secured vac schemes/first year programmes etc.
