    I was wondering if i could get everyones opinion?

    I started year 1 of a course Quantity Surveying ( Commercial Management ) at a London University this year.

    Later i realised that the course is not RICS accredited. I reapplied for year 2 Entry to a RICS accredited course however i found out one courses is a 4 year course allowing for a term of Work experience ( Oxford Brookes) and the other one wants me to restart in year 1 ( Reading University)

    Does everyone think the extra year would be worth it to end up with a RICS accredited degree from a better University?

    I do have the option of doing a Master later which is still technically an extra year or two part time. Could also be costly on a full time basis.

    Cheers for the advise. What makes Kingston stand out in your opinion?

    Yeah i realised the year out placement is optional in Oxford Brookes. Heading there on Wednesday for an interview.

    So at the moment im considering
    1) Oxford Brookes ( Interested in checking out Oxford)
    2) Reading University ( Seems to have the best reputation though they want me to restart in year 1 which is a bit of a bummer)
    3) Greenwich
    4) Kingston
    5) Westminister
    6) Southbank

    Decisions Decisions.

    I think i would miss London. Then again it would be nice to be a part of a campus University. In London everyone seems to get lost in the crowd.

    Any ideas
