Which Uni out of these three!? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I am unsure out of 3 which to put as my final choice. These are the 3 I have got in mind.

    Manchester Metropolitan, Buckinghamshire New or Central Lancashire!?

    I heard Manc Met is a decent uni with a wicked night life, whereas Buckinghamshire New is a also a good uni but with a poor night life. I have Central Lanc in min as it has quite low entry requirements so could be my lifesaver. Apparently its a good Uni aswell but the surrounding area is meant to be awful.

    Please help asap


    Hi, personally I would choose Central Lancashire, because it seems to rank higher in the league tables than both Manc Met and Buckinghamshire New. Also, you have the benefit of lower entry requirements which will make it a little easier for you to get in. However, you should visit all three unis before making your decision, so you can see which one suits you best.

    Which one of them do you like the course for?

    As a person who lives in the affluent area of Preston where UCLan is situated I would advise you to think again, I personally think the social aspect would be awful and from what I've heard the accommodation is not so nice. As for the surrounding area, yes, the town centre and parts leading from it are pretty awful. but as soon as you get to Fulwood/Broughton/Barton it is really lovely. Manchester would be a much better city to spend your degree course time and Buckinghamshire is really nice (I was born there and lived there for years) but it may not have the name you're looking for. Hope this was a little helpful!

    Not from the UK so I've never heard of any of those but IMO when in doubt go with the university with the best name recognition. Forget rankings, half of those are determined by the unis that are willing to pay the newspaper the most money for their place in the rankings (just my opinion). Manchester Met might be second rate within Manchester but at least you can go just about anywhere in Europe and your university will be recognized if only because of a couple of soccer/football teams.

    Buckinghamshire and Lancashire? Never heard of those places, but people around the world know Manchester.
