    The only campus university I visited I didn't like It's a difficult decision to make, the year abroad would have definitely swung it for me but I decided between UCL and LSE when I applied so I'm biased

    So in the end, I actually decided to firm Edinburgh

    I know the year abroad isn't definite at Edinburgh but if I don't get on it, I don't mind because Edinburgh is such a lovely city and if I decide to go on and do post-grad afterwards, I can do it in Germany.

    I'm actually really surprised at myself for firming it but since I got back from the open day, I haven't been able to think of much else so I had to.

    Interesting decision! I thought you were completely set on having the year abroad

    Hello. I wish to have some opinions from you all here.
    Is it wise to turn down Nottingham for Durham in economics? I just think Durham as a university suits me more. I also like its course despite it being less mathematical and has some applied business choices. However, since Durham's course is not as mathematical as Nottingham, does it mean it isn't as highly regarded for job prospects or further study?

    Not at all, it sounds like Durham is perfectly suited to you. The only point where Nottingham might have a slight advantage would be applying for postgraduate courses in Economics/Finance due to its more quantitative nature.

    What Tat said. However, I would like to add that Nottingham's Economics course is a BA/Bsc therefore you have great flexibility in terms of the quantitative nature of your degree. Neither course is going to let you escape without doing Mathematical modules and you can make your degree at Nottingham less or more quantitative than at Durham. In terms of job prospects, http://www.dur.ac.uk/resources/caree...ydept__ALL.pdf
    shows that Durham places its students excellently but at the same time http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/economic...etter-2011.pdf so does Nottingham. I would say go to both Universities, compare the course content and then make a decision because they are both top institutions outside the Top 5.
