    I believe Manchester is slightly more respected. Both good Universities though.

    I'm making the exact same decision for Chem Eng but siding towards Birmingham coz I liked the campus feel and the intake was smaller and department/students were friendlier also the phd department looked really good which is a good thing to think about for potentially later on... So look at all aspects before deciding and try and get as many viewpoints/opinions on them both before you decide! I'm still not 100% set but think I'm persuading myself to go for Birmingham! Hope that helps

    Hey you all!
    I applied for IR course on 13th January, but the only thing I've heard back from them is an email introducing the uni. There was also a password for my Bham VIP page. Does it mean anything? (I really have my hopes up on this one as my classmate who applied to Bham has not recieved this email) Or, since it's been a month and a half and still no reply, should I get worried?
    Hey, I applied for IR on 12th or 13th January, too and only got the Bhm VIP details so far as well. Hope we don't have to be worried, did you get anything during the last few days?

    I got 2 offers from other unis on the 14th and 29th January but haven't heard back from the rest yet...

    I reckon the 2 of you should go to manc instead. It is univerally respected internationally which would clearly give you greater options when you graduate.
    manc is in the 30s while birmingham is in the 60s in terms of world rankings

    I know but I don't trust certain world rankings as they rank UCL 5th best for UK despite low rankings of 20ish for uk rankings. I think both are amazing and have equally good teaching and graduate prospects so it's just a matter of where you would like to live and study for the nest few years.

    Interesting, However the guardian league table 2014 ranks Birmingham 15 in the UK and Manchester 31 therefore I won't suggest these people look at one league table to make the decision that Manchester is more respected than Birmingham. It also depends on subjects in the world rankings too so I wouldn't listen to this advice.

    Leicester has lower grade reqs, Manchester's probably harder to get into than Birmingham. Common sense sense dictates that it should be your insurance imo.
