    I did my first degree at Keele and I have to say that I really enjoyed it. The campus is really lovely, and the towns nearby are small but pretty good as well. Obviously its not the same as living in a big city but on the plus side it is much cheaper.

    I lived off campus in a really nice house and only paid £150 a month for a big room with a double bed. The dual honors program offers a lot of flexibility as well, which is really good.

    I'd personally have to say Hull - the staff are great, I didn't like Keele much, seemed way too isolated. Hull has a far better reputation for law than it does generally and the law school has very good links with local and national firms and i know quite a few people with training contracts, which is always a bonus.

    Thanks , I did get that impression on my visit day. have just been leaning towards Keele as it offers flexibiity in to a dual honours - useful in case I find the course too difficult. Do you know of any rescue strategies for failing first year law students at Hull? Not the sort of question you want to make on a visit day!
    Change course

    Im a third year law student at Keele. and i can honestly say choosing Keele over my other 2 choices was the est decision i coul have made. I thought it would be dull, and id be stuck doing nothing all day but im really not. Despite what everyone says it is amazing here. theres lots to do. 5 bars on camps and the union. and only a short bus/taxi to the near towns, (although i must say ive only been to castle once :P) you have to way up. Do you want to live in a city with high expence. or do you want to go to a uni with the most beautiful campus, forest, open fields. Imo it wasnt a hard choice

    Fantastic - have you decied to go to either - if so which one and why?
    oh god. im so sorry for the late reply lol
    i decided to go to keele.
    i heard keele is a more open minded university while brookes is less so...
    Keele lets students have critical thinking and stuff.

    and also because Keele gave me a higher offer.... lol so i had Keele as Firm.
    and Brookes as insurance. but both accepted me after my results were out..


    Im international by the way )
