    Does anybody have any comments that can help me decide between Durham or Lancaster for Maths?

    I've visited both, and checked all the comparison sites, but am having trouble deciding. I preferred the Maths structure at Lancaster, the campus and possibility of a Masters with a study abroad BUT Durham has a good reputation, a college system which seems safe/ easy and comforting.

    Lancaster has more pure maths, a modular course, possible 4 year Masters and study abroad. Durham has a good reputation, more mechanical/physics and weighted more to a final exam.

    At the moment I want to put the Lancaster Maths course at Durham but I know that can't be done. I'm torn between the two and as they seem very different.

    Anybody got any suggestions as one of these two will be my firm and probably my home for the next 3 years!

    Personally I'd choose Durham straight away. I know Lancaster has been improving it rankings lots recently which is great but Durham is a solid top 5 uni...Lancaster may have more flexible courses but in terms of mathematical quality I'd place my bets at Durham. Plus Durham looks amazing!

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
