Surrey or Southampton?....u trolling?

Cant say much on leisure n such, but for reputation it's defo defo defo Southampton. Purely because it has such a strong reputation for engineering. Also, worth considering that Surrey is in the town of Guildford, so it won't be as happening as Southampton.

Dude, whatuni is a joke. They have "eye candy" as part of their criteria! :unimpressed:Trust me on this Southampton slams Surrey for engineering. Ask any of your teachers.

LOL thats true.
Yeah I will ask my teachers tomorra and see, but the surrey course currently has 1 year in industry whereas southampton doesnt, which might be decisive in the future?

Im just fighting both points lol

You would be stupid not to pick Southampton! It deffo has better job prospects. It is one of the best Engineering Unis not only in the Uk but the world as well!
Surrey does not have a strong Engineering department like Southampton.

Forget about tables because they are skewed by stupid things! I can promise you that you will have a better time / job if you go to Soton.

But then Surrey does have that year in industry which Soton does not....would it be risky to pick Soton because companies would be more likely to choose those with experience?
