    It's not like Bath isn't well known and prestigious.

    I'd go to the one you liked best as they're both 'up there' as far as pharmacy schools go.

    I would say LSOP. I am a bit biased but it really is a good uni. However, go with the one you like better I guess and think you will enjoy more, else you might regret your choice. If you like Bath and not SOP, go for Bath.

    i had to make the same decision last year. i cudnt see any differences between the both. but one in london, one in a more remote area and so i thought, im gonna get the same degree anyway, 1 is cheaper and the other is more expensive (to live), then I chose bath

    if finance is one of ur main factors, then Baths is a better choice, considering the living cost and bursary. it also depends on where u live.

    Yeah if you've already got your A Level or equivalent results (whatever your entry requirements are) then your offer will be unconditional rather than conditional (on the condition that you achieve x results).

    I don't know much about LSOP, but what i like about Bath is that the course has very few social pharmacy modules, which would be boring in my opinion.

    Bath is excellent for pharmacy. Don't know about LSOP, but the new head of the LSOP was, until this year, head of pharmacy at Bath.

    I'd recommend bath - but i'm biased!

    BAth is supposed to be really good for pharmacology and biochem. What is Bath better at out of the 2?

    yeh, baths 6th and LSOP is 10th on the Times league table...but LSOP is a lot closer to my house and more convenient(e.g. london, russell sq. station, etc)...it depends on other (personal etc) factors too..for teaching Pharmacy, i think both uni are good on that...Baths got a good reputation, same with LSOP and LSOP teaches pharmacy specifically...

    if you stay in london will you be living at home? it would mean taking the tube everyday which could be tiring depending on how long your journey is.

    When i went to the bath open day/interview it looked like everything u needed was within the university grounds. it seemed that there wasnt much outside of the uni.

    If your in london you'll probably have more fun beacuse everything is there and can see all your friends who are in london too.

    thats what I do as well as don't like about Bath - everything's on campus and u dont really go outside

    I would choose LSOP, tho Im at Bath - if not because of the high living expense, I would have chosen LSOP
