I've applied to do an MMath at both Leeds and Nottingham university but can't decide which one I want to go to.
I think I prefered Leeds as a city to Nottingham, although haven't really been around either enough to make a proper decision (esp for nightlife).
I loved how everything was on your doorstep at Leeds, there's everything you'd need on campus, but you can walk around it in minutes, and the City's only a short walk away.
Whereas at Nottingham,it's kind of the opposite, where the huge campus means it can take 20 minutes to walk from one end of the campus to the other. And then you need a bus to into the city, unless you want to walk for over half an hour.
From what I've Nottingham's more prestigious for Maths than Leeds. And I felt like the lecturers were alot more proffessional at Nottingham. There's also building work going on at Nottingham for the Maths department (but I'm not sure how much of that is for the students, I think it's more for the staff).
Please help, any ideas or views are welcome and hopefully they might help me decide where I want to spend the next 4 years of my life.
Thank you in advance

Depends what's more important to you, the course or the city. I'd say go for Leeds, it's got pretty much everything you could want from uni.

I have the same dilemma..Leeds or Nottingham? Just for Natural Sciences rather than maths.
Went to Nottingham a couple of days ago so can answer about the building work...
The physics and maths departments currently share the same building. But they're moving maths over to a whole new building of their own. It's to be completed by september.
