    Hi, as the title suggests, I can't make up my mind!

    I've got conditional offers to study Physics from Manchester, Sussex, Nottingham and Warwick, and I know Manchester is gonna be my firm.

    As for insurance, I'm torn between Sussex and Nottingham (sorry Warwick!), and basically can't choose between the two.

    Both have great departments, the campuses and cities both seem great, so based on just any advice anyone has to offer, which one would you recommend of the two?

    I'm looking for anything to do with general living, things to see/do, what the university community is like etc, the typical stuff.

    Many thanks in advance, hoping that I won't need to use the insurance choice anyway...!

    nottingham is russel group and has higher prestige
    sussex probably has a better department (marginally)
    if you wanna be a physicist or phd, sussex, if your unsure nottingham

    Sussex is a great 'campus Uni' - smaller than many, therefore friendly and with a good 'community' feeling. Excellent Maths Dept with a good reputation. Brighton is also a great place to be a student - lots of interesting stuff going on, its by the sea and is only 50 mins by train from London. Highly recommended.
