Brunel VS Essex : (Genetics) ? HELP PLEASE :) Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi I'm currently debating whether to put essex or brunel for my insurance. Essex offer biological sciences (genetics) and brunel biomedical sciences (genetics) with a year in industry.

    I've heard a lot of bad talk about brunel and would really appreciate a second opinion.


    There appears to be a lot of differences between the actual courses. This is something you can not overlook as just because a course has a similar name it shouldn't be assumed that it is the same course content as another course. The year in industry is a massive difference between the two, for example, so you need to work out whether this is something that is exciting to you or not as if it isn't of interest then there is little point doing a course where you're offered this option. Take a look at the actual course content of the two degrees and decide which one is more appealing. This way you might find you've discounted a university before you've even begun to consider its actual location.

    You'll find it easier asking in the specific university forums.
