    Bath has great links with industry and is renowned for its sandwich year programmes. One obvious question you should ask yourself is, how important is nightlife to you? If its important then you should consider how happy you would be at Warwick which is very isolated as opposed to bath which had some good clubs and bars. Both are great uni's, I think that you should pick the one that you would be happiest at!!!

    i am also having to make this decision but for a languages degree... i would say warwick has a slightly better campus but in a worse area; i dont know what your course is like but i prefer bath's, though warwick may be considered more prestigious by employers...go with your instinct. which accommodation/social life do you think you would prefer by the way?

    nightlife is necessary but i'm not one of those people who die for it. i'm not fussed with warwick's nightlife altho i assume Bath's is better. warwick always seems to sound better than Bath, but open day at Bath today sounded really good........the prob is, its no good only a handful of ppl realise how good its sandwich courses r......i'm not sure about employability?? hmmmm :s

    Bath has better links with Industry. Wouldn't call much between them for employment.

    Bath is great.

    hey bigcnee, just the person i'm looking for........can u tell me which accomodation is gd? cos i was shown Westwood today with the pods, and the students were saying its one of the best accomodation, but i didnt really like it. they said the newest one...Solsbury?! is meant to be really nice and quite big. i'm only really looking for ensuite, and they seem to be really cheap. where did u stay?

    Haha, @ Westwood. It's probably third (albeit by a LONG way).

    Avoid:

    Norwood
    Eastwood
    Westwood

    None have proper ensuite and are reasonably old.

    Go for:

    Solsbury
    Marlborough

    These are the new buildings, all with ensuite and are in excellent condition.

    I stay in Solsbury.

    I am at Warwick. The business school is very good, and has a very good reputation. The nightlife is not bad. There are union events on every evening: e.g Soul Nation, Top Banana (free cheese), Score (sports and Britpop), and Heat (int music). Leamington is very good for nightclubs and many live there after the second year.

    The sandwich scheme at Bath is very good though, especially if you get it with a good company. But I think you can get internships with businesses in the 2nd year, and a lot of Warwick students do.

    hey saxman....yeah i e-mailed warwick to ask if they'd allow for a placement year. they said yes but i have to find it myself, and i doubt i'll get much support. having heard at Bath today.......bath give students alot of support and interview techniques etc....which sounds quite useful. i've been to warwick a couple of times, so i'm quite familiar with the union, its really nice! so would u choose bath or warwick in my situation?!

    Split sessional is what you make of it.

    There is a good chance that you'll make friends with someone that'll allow you to store your stuff at theirs over Easter (sometimes with an added "friendship" charge)

    The car things shouldn't really be a problem. The buses are regular and cheap (it can get ridiculously cheap if you know how ). Bath is very bad for traffic anyway, so a car is fairly redundant.

    We order our shopping from Tescos online (which works out cheaper than going to town (or "Fresh")).

    (Solsbury and Marlborough have broadband connections of 100Mbps, which has its pro's and con's )
