    Are there any reasons why Exeter is much better than NewCastle?
    coz NewCastle Law School seems to have a higher ranking in the League Tables
    should I believe in the rankings or should I simply ignore them XD?

    Because it's more respected by employers not only nationally, but globally, due to its reputation as one of the top law schools. League tables are a bunch of *******s. For example, LSE is ranked 3rd in UK, but 70th in the world on one league table, but UCL is 7th in the UK and 4th in the world on another. A degree from Exeter is far more beneficial, especially for Law. It's one of the top, if not the top non LNAT uni, other than Warwick.

    coz I am not really sure about these two uni as I found a lot of comments claiming that they both share similar extent of reputation but for me as an international student, the tuition fee of NewCastle is 3000 pounds less than [email protected]@"
    Thats why i really want to hear more voices regarding these two uni

    Fees don't matter too much because as a solicitor/barrister, you can afford to pay them back easily . I'd imagine Newcastle has more of a 'buzz' to it because it's quite a young city. A quote from my friend who goes there: "If you go to Newcastle uni a virgin, you won't be after your first year". Exeter is a clean and wealthy city. I don't know how night life is there. I asked a similar question to yours a while ago, but I was asking between York and Exeter. Practically everyone said that Exeter Law degrees are far more valued than York's, and York is ranked 5th for Law on one league table,

    That would be great for OP I'm sure but he's international, they'll be paying upfront not via a student loan.

    It's all well and good saying that fees don't matter as solicitors and barristers can easily pay them, but we currently have an over supply of law graduates with many unemployed or unable to enter law. Moreoever, not every solicitor or barrister is a high earner. It is something that is worth taking into account among a number of other factors, particularly as the difference between the two in terms of academics and reputation is so little.

    Erm...but where is your evidence that Exeter is "more respected by employers nationally and globally". Even the link you provide shows there isn't a substantial difference

    As for Exeter being "clean", does this mean Newcastle is less clean? For a major city it has one some of the cleanest air. Also, when you talk of how "wealthy" a city is, what do you mean by this? Students at Newcastle will be spending their time in the city centre and wealthy places such as Jesmond. Exeter, and Devon widely, also has issues with deprivation.

    The difference between them is far less than the difference between your performance at a university at which you are happy and your performance at a university at which you feel uncomfortable.

    As one is a lively northern big city university and the other isn't, it is implausible that you would like them equally.
