    OK so Ive applied for Business at:

    Durham: Offer ABB (Stephenson College)
    Sheffield: Offer ABB/AAC
    Manchester: Offer ABB
    Newcastle: Pending

    Anyone know whether Durham is a good choice for Business or is Sheffield a better idea? I know Durham is a good uni but the business school is in Stockton and not really part of the Durham uni thing. On the other hand I like the fact that its collegiate and everyone belongs 2 a college. Seems 2 be more of a framework than some of the others which is good coz Im quite nervous about going alone etc.
    Can anyone advise where they would go out of those four?

    Out of those choices, I would have actually said Manchester is the best by far, and then Newcastle, then Sheffield/Durham tied. Durham Business isnt that great from what I have heard and its in the middle of nowehere, but it does have the Durham uni tag on the degree.

    I know what u mean about Mcr being good as far as the actual course is concerned but Im not mad on the uni and I live in Newcastle so Id rather get far away from home if poss. Will probably go 2 Durham, i think the disadvantage of the location is overuled by the many advantages especially the value of the degree. Thanks 4 ur advice. Ppl have told me not 2 go 2 durham coz its crap 4 business so just wanted 2 know why everyone says so
