    Nottingham was number 1 in the times league tables for the subject last time i looked but might have changed. All of them are great but quite different, are having a social life and going out a lot important to you? if so then you should probably rule out warwick and york.

    In terms of overall rep notts, york and warwick would def come above cardiff and sheffield but again all of them are great, congrats!

    DO NOT choose between Warwick/York/Notts based on the league table position. Visit each of them and go wherever you feel most comfortable. There's absolutely nothing in it in terms of reputation or 'prestige'. Really is that simple, no need for further advice therefore

    actually Nottingham favoured me most recently
    Nott. requires me to hv IELTS .. that's what i'm doing now

    Mostlikely i m making a tough decision between Nott and York ..
    Warwick is too low in the Psychology League table ..

    Irrespective of the course Cardiff is a lovely city and a great uni, don't rule it out without a visit...in fact visit all of your choices but be careful to choose the place you can imagine living in for 3 yrs and not which is the best day out

    I'm in my first year studying psychology at Nottingham

    There's a few other people from University of Nottingham who post on another forum (sorry if that sounds like a plug). There's a link to the latest discussion about Nottingham below:

    There are a couple of those institutions that you have to visit to appriciate their various attributes (both positive and negative).

    Nottingham University for example isn't all that close to the city centre, but the campus it's self is most picturesque.

    Sheffield University, is a wierd one, beautiful setting, set in 7 hills, 4 miles from the Peak District, and far enough away 3/4 mile, from a city centre, such that sometimes you forget where you are.

    Can't speak for the others, though I hear York is an expensive city in which to live.

    yes i am at nottingham hence my constant biased praising of it

    i'm really enjoying myself and haven't yet found anything to fault with the uni or the town. the only real problem i think it has is crime, i had some stupid little townie try to nick my phone(no chance! hehe)a couple of days ago and apparently one of the self-catered halls had an armed robbery.

    er yes but ignoring that the campus is beautiful, the facilities are great, freshers and karni were amazing and there does seem to be a really nice atmosphere about the place. there is so much to do in the town, loads of clubs and bars, which i think york would lack (completly unsubstanciated opinion, well from one friend who is totally bored of the stupidly small amount of clubs in the town). its not too expensive, we get loads of decent bands coming to play and there are tons of shops.

    so yeah, notts rocks!

    you will probably also find there are alot of people from singapore, hong kong, malaysia etc here

    I've got an offer from Cardiff for psychology too! Are you going to the open day tomorrow?
    I also applied to York but am yet to hear from them. All the places you've had offers from have a good reputation, so I guess the main thing to do is to choose a place you know you'll feel happy in.

    Ahhh sorry! How silly of me!

    Cardiff was great... It will probably be my first choice... But York would complicate that if I were to receive an offer from them... Hence you would probably prefer York anyway!
