I haven't been using this forum long, but most of the questions I've asked tend to harp on about 'UEA or York for Maths'. I eventually settled on UEA, then for no reason at all thought 'actually York'. Now I'm leaning much more towards York, but I have no idea why.

I know everybodies opinions are biased, but it would be good to hear them anyway. My plans after uni is to hopefully carry on doing research, get a job for the British Antarctica Survey or something like that. Where would you go?

I don't really know much about York, but UEA is cool.

(lol, I know that wouldn't have helped you at all)

I'd chose UEA over York anyday (even though I am bias, being at UEA and all). UEA is far livelier than York...what UEA lacks aesthetically it makes up for in atmosphere!!!

I'd agree with that. If you like pretty with no substance then York is for you. If however you like nice people, a REALLY good atmosphere on campus and generally a lovely place to be then its UEA all the way in my opinion.

If you're interested in league table positions, I'd say York. If not, I have no idea because I've never been to either. I do know a couple of people at UEA who seem to like it though.

In terms of teaching quality, I believe that they are both on par with each other. However, many of the elite firms and some old tradionalists may view York as somwhat more superior in terms of reputation. They are both good universities, and no matter which of them you choose, note that a degree from either one of them, would put you in good standing for your future prospects.

argh - As a spare of the moment thing last night I put 'York' down as my first choice and now after reading all of your comments am beginning to regret this!

Oh well, I suppose I'm going to have a good time whichever uni I go to. Thanks for your replies

Hey don't worry, think of its reputation! I'm glad to meet a fellow york-person actually as I think I'm putting it down as my firm. What subject?

Hi there! I tried to reply to your private message (my very first private message - joy!) but you've reached your storage limit apparently. I'm applying for 'Maths' (G100). What about you?

Got it in one!!! There is no real source behind it, I just found that when I went there I didn't like it at all. I thought there wouldn't be enough to keep me busy during my 4 years. I suppose I thought it was kinda soul-less or something, I can't really say what I disliked just that I knew it wasn't for me. I'm sure many people whould disagree with me but its just what I felt when I visited...

UEA on the otherhand I really liked, the people were all really friendly and everyone made me feel comfortable when I visited. The concrete is a turn-off but I couldn't fault the atmosphere!!!
