I need MAJOR uni advice!Watch
p.s. do ya reckon salford is actually much more rough than Leeds?
Salford is very mixed in terms of league table results, some courses are amongst the best in the country where as others are amongst the worse. I've been talking to a few members of staff and they said that Salford will keep improving in the league tables in the next few years (it went up by 11 places last year).
Leeds University has a better reputation than Salford though if it is the proper Leeds you'e talking about and not the met.
My course at Salford is not too bad, there are times when I feel I could have done better but on recent research I discovered a similar course at Liverpool dosn't even seem as good. They are investing £100 million into the university to upgrade faciltiies in the next few years.
The problem with Salford is they tend to what I call sellout, in other words let idiots in, however the idiots don't pass. I would say its bettter than what the league tables would suggest but its not as good as Leeds.
Also the social life is just as good as any city because you'e a mile away from Manchester city centre (the campus where the music is 10 minutes walk from the city centre).
is it just BA music or a special music course??
if it just a BMus or BA in music (general) then i would recommend leeds as it has the best reputation...
amazingtrade- the king of salford, jokes. Def Leeds especially for music I hear its grrrreat.
whats the accomodation like at salford amazing trade? (how many share a bathroom lol)and the night life etc- I was really stunned cos it had a great atmosphere!
Accomdation depends on where you want to live, if you want the quite life then the flats are 4 per flat, Castle Irewell is pretty much a none stop party but you have to share with 11 other people, although you get your own bedroom. I think these houses have more than one bathroom.
In Manchester they don't really bat an eyelid to southerners unless you claim to be a Man U fan!
I would have thought people would have adjusted to the fact that everyone in Manchester supports City and everyone in Essex, Dubin, Honk Kong, Taiwan, New York, Singapore, Brazilia, Stockholm, Oslo and Aberystwyth supports United by now!!!
Seriosly though as longs as you don't come out with "I hate it up north" etc then you will have no problems getting along. We know most southerner's arn't jumped up pantry boy/girls.
I am sure people at Leeds will welcome you as well.
