    I dont know where to study. I am planning to do business studies and possibly become a teacher or just work in industry. I will be the first in my family to go to UNI

    My choices are Uni of Liverpool vs Sheffield Hallam.

    -With Hallam I can stay at home or go to accommdation, save money, continue with my part time job so more money so I can have a better social outings, buy a car etc.
    My life will not change dramatically, I will just be adding to it. Maybe this would allow me to get a better grades? Because

    -With Liverpool, I will Have to quit my job, most of my money will go on accommodation, so I will have a little left over. I will have to start again making friends. I have been told that in Liverpool it is hard to find part time jobs with good hours.

    According to UNIstats both courses have 70% and 69% employment after 6 months. I know Liverpool is a red brick and Russell group, with prestige. Maybe this will mean better long term employment prospects/more connections?? Furthermore it seems more people get first class and 2.1 degrees. But overall short term employment is 1% higher at Hallam.

    thanks you for reading, I would appreciate any help, advice and comments.

    (sorry about spelling, grammar, I am on my phone,)

    Personally I'd go for Hallam, I know a couple of students with financial issues and they are working so hard on their financial issues, that their grades have dropped a fair bit. Students who are worrying about other issues don't tend to do so well on their course.

    * Dont get obsessed with League Table stats - they dont actually tell you if you will enjoy the course, or if you will get a job at the end of it.

    * Look at the course descriptions. No two Business Studies course will be exactly the same. Read the detailed descriptions of each unit/module/option in all of the 3 years of the course. What would you choose? Also, check what extras might be available - optional language courses, courses from other Depts, placements and/or Year Abroad etc. Although the city/Uni environment is important, there is no point going there if the course itself is not what you want to do. Three years is a very long time if you are bored.
