    **** Warwick and Bristol. Law at Nottingham is brilliant!
    Thanks and I hope that come results day you're more confident with your decision.

    Notts law is more prestigious than Warwick's though..

    I realize that but being an international student, I always seem to have to justify my decision over Warwick because of its overall prestige. Most of the older people I know have never even heard of Bristol or even UCL or KCL before but rave about Warwick. Looking at this now, they're probably misinformed but it does cause some doubt...

    I wouldn't worry, go where you feel is best for you, as long as you go to a respected university for undergraduate it doesn't really matter...

    I chose Nottingham over Durham, despite the latter being ranked as a "better" department by rankings and other people. I just didn't like it anywhere near as much as Nottingham.

    They have never heard of UCL and KCL. Are you for real? They are both world renowned universities.

    Hey just firmed Nottingham and sorted accommodation. I'm on the waiting list for an en suite at university park. My third choice is at jubilee park as that's the next en suite accommodation available. I was just wondering on people's thoughts on it as I haven't visited and I think it's a half a mile walk from university park

    Has anyone else firmed Nottingham over the more 'prestigious' Universities e.g Warwick, Bristol, LSE, UCL, KCL etc.
    How secure/confident do you feel with your decision?
    Yeah I firmed Nottingham over KCL and I'm happy with my decision. I visited KCL today and it's just not the same experience as a campus university. When I visited Nottingham I knew it was for me

    Yeah I definitely think it depends if you like city or campus based uni. I live close to London and my dad works there so I know what it's like. I just preferred Nottingham

    Hi,

    I have an unconditional offer to study Biochemistry Bsc with the Science Foundation Year in 2015. Is anyone else studying the Foundation Year too? Also, I'm having a lot of trouble deciding between Southampton, Nottingham and Keele. Anyone up for comparing? My brain is going to melt with the stress of it all 😩

    Have you seen all of the unis in person? Keele was one of the unis I looked at during an open day and it definitely wasn't nearly as good as Nottingham. Also, there is way more to do in an area like Notts than Stoke-on-Trent.

    I'm going to be starting the science foundation year at keele's this year, from students and past students I'v talked to and those reviews on the internet, it all seems very positive, plus I like its one of the biggest campus based unis in the uk and has that kind of vintage and country look to it. Also in 2014 it was ranked 1st for student satisfaction and found this on there site ;


    Forensic Science and Sociology at Keele were ranked first for subject-level performace, with top 10 rankings for: American Studies, Anatomy, Biology, Geology, Maths, Media Studies, Medicine, Biochemistry, Music, Pharmacy, Politics, and Social Policy. Its based on the National Student Survey in 2014

    Had an unconditional for politics and economics at Nottingham but put it as my reserve so it's not unconditional any more
    But I loved Nottingham so I'll be happy if I end up there- but I know I'll have last choice of accommodation which is depressing- any tips on the best/worst ones that I might get if I end up at Nottingham?

    Nottingham has a better reputation than the other two. I looked at Southampton and found it a bit run down and dull in comparison to Nottingham which seemed vibrant and had lots to do but it depends what you are looking for

    Just choose Notts. The politics and economics departments are both extremely well regarded - especially Economics.

    Depends if you are going for on campus accommodation (catered) or off campus (self-catered). On campus accommodation is given out via a random allocation system; it doesn't really matter where you end up because you'll grow to love your hall.
