    I grew up in Bristol and now I'm at Manchester (feel free to ask me anything about Bristol as a city - tis a lovely place). Nightlife in Bristol is good - you won't get bored - but there is an awful lot more to choose from in Manchester tbh

    Have you had a look at course modules? They're the most important thing to look at - if you don't like what you're studying, you won't enjoy yourself regardless of how good the nightlife is.

    Oh wow, how we love you on this thread I have taken a look at the courses and I think that Manchester is better only because they have more modules all the way through whereas Bristol seem to do all the easy stuff then get harder each year, so the modules they start with are more concentrated. However I haven't been to Bristol so I need to do that.

    I really like Manchester though, so I don't know anymore. Then I've still gotta wait on UCL...meh.

    where else did you apply?-and why did you choose Manchester?

    Need some advice, I received my offer today (AAB, Economics BSc) and Manchester is my first choice. I also have an offer from my insurance (Westminster, BBC, Finance with Management BSc). My other three are Queen Mary (got an offer: AAB, Economics BSc), Royal Holloway (no offer yet, AAB, Economics) and Surrey (no offer yet, AAB, Economics). I personally think that I need to insure Westminster as it's my only choice with lower grades.

    I read on here today that the application for accommodation is open, and I'm quite concerned about securing a good place (for accommodation) as it's first come first served.

    I'm positive that Manchester is my first choice and as I said, I think I need to insure Westminster.

    Because of this would I better offer withdrawing my application to Royal Holloway and Surrey and then firming Manchester and insuring Westminster immediately?

    Thanks for any advice,

    Dan

    Read on a little bit more and you'll see it was a mistake and accomodation applications aren't open yet. Read even further and you'll find that you don't have to firm Manchester to make an accomodation application as they only offer it to you after your A-level exams.

    I applied for Economics and Finance, it says AAB on their website, which is equal to 1.5 in Germany. But now they ask me to get 1.3 (AAA equivalent) that I probably won't achieve.

    :love:

    If you prefer the course structure at Manchester, then it's a pretty good reason to choose Manchester, but tbh there's no need to rush things - you've got months before you need to decide anyway.

    I applied to Leeds, Birmingham, Loughborough and Leicester. I chose Manchester for several reasons - the course structure was uniquely flexible, it's in a big city with lots to do, there was a fairly niche society that I wanted to get involved with (which then disappeared before I arrived :facepalm:), and when I went to the open day it just felt right - there's a lot to be said for going with your gut feeling, and I can't see myself having been happier anywhere else.

    A few points
    - accommodation applications aren't actually open yet (there was a bit of confusion about that one)
    - you can apply for accommodation and so get your place in the queue even before you've firmed or insured - you just need to have received an offer
    - though it is first come first served, you're still guaranteed a place in halls if you apply before August 31st
    - there are no halls that are so dreadful your life would be over if you were to get put there (and even if you did end up in a hall you didn't like, you can apply to move from 1st October i.e. two weeks after you move in
    - there's no point insuring Westminster if you wouldn't be happy to go there. If you don't mind the risk of a gap year, you might like to consider insuring RHUL - last year they had an absolute bloodbath on results day, and ended up accepting people with AAB and ABB offers who got BBC for just about every course except psychology. These things do change year to year, so there's no guarantee that the same thing would happen again, but it's an option worth considering if you don't really want to go to Westminster.

    In short, don't worry about accommodation, wait until you've got all your replies, and consider your insurance option carefully.

    Yes, it's supposed to be my firm, but I'm not really sure anymore.
    I think I may have to wait for York and Lancaster, their international requirements are slightly slower than Manchester, don't ask me why :O
    How about you?

    That would be great
    I just started to regret my choices cause all of them are AAA-AAB Unis >:/

    Anyway, I want to study in the UK because I like the country so much and of course British people!! Besides, I want to get out of Germany as soon as I've finished school to experience something different ^^

    The only thing I still don't get is the British accent It's so fancy and flat that I really have to struggle to understand I'm more familiar with American English ^^

    As I've just said, my first conditional offer is from Manchester

    In my head, I've sort of decided that I'm firming Manchester, but I'm trying to keep an open mind so that when I go to Bristol I don't dislike it unintentionally lol. haha about the society I felt like it felt right at Manchester but then again I haven't been anywhere else so...

    I'll see
