Can't decide which to go to! I've got all my offers and all the grades are realistic so its decision time! Its to do Geography and German Joint Hons.
Pros and Cons- Birmingham- far from home, not sure about the big city BUT very nice campus and good academically. Swansea - even further from home! But by the sea and the course sounds v good, and its well regarded for my 2 subjects. Oxford Brookes - in a nice city, not so far from home, not so academic (could be a good thing or a bad thing!) generally an 'OK' Uni. Ideally I'd like Swansea's course, on Brums campus IN Oxford! Anyway...help!

It depends what you want from your time at uni. Birmingham has the best reputation and would probably be the most fun place so i'd chose to go there. I've visited Oxford Brookes and it seemed nice and friendly. Don't know much about Swansea. I say go for Birmingham!

birmingham,its a booming city,although some grim 1960s buildings,they are knocking them all down,ie bullring redevelopment,bridley placeetc

its expected that 12 bilion will be spenton birm over the next 10 years

there will be good job oportunities there

plus as been said the campus is very nice

Yep BIRMINGHAM!! Its good for transport, if you have to travel by train its good as its the only uni to have its own railway station.

Its got the best rep *easily* - the area where the uni is - is really nice and green, you can get on the train at the uni and in 10 mins be at the Bullring, a fab place.

The only negatives are that the accomodation isnt directly on campus, distances range from 10mins walk to 30mins walk or a small train journey, the accomodation is well served be uni run shuttle busses tho.

And - the accom is quite expensive.

but having said that it will prob be my first choice for sept !
