the campus at Birmingham is beautiful!! traditional red brick university, its own train station, beautiful accomodation (especially at the Vale) ... hmm each to their own I guess?

You can't really go wrong between Birmingham and Nottingham to be honest, both Russell Group and therefore automatically have the better reputation with employers (lets be real).

In my opinion, Birmingham is better- but I can't force my opinion on you
Check out Birmingham's youtube videos - they may help!

But Nottingham is also known for having the 'highest crime rates' among British cities... so can't really say nottingham is better than birmingham on this..

Well, since you're posting in the Birmingham subforum, you may well get a biased opinion. However, I was very much in the same position as you last year... I had to choose between Nottingham and Birmingham (and a few other unis, but I narrowed it down to those two).

Since I was on a year out, the offers were unconditional, so I had to purely take into account how I felt about the unis rather than grade issues. Reputation-wise, I just didn't think there was enough in it to sway me either way - they're both solid, decent universities, although it could well depend on your course and department. I chose Birmingham simply because I felt more at home here when I visited and could imagine myself feeling comfortable and enjoying the beautiful campus/the surroundings I'd be studying in, and I've been happy here. So go with your gut instinct.

yeah apparently a lot of people have had the same dilemma :rolleyes:
I haven't had the chance to see the Birmingham campus first hand yet but I have seen videos and it looks stunning.. i'm sort of leaning towards it now

just to ask though - is it quite ethnically mixed?
