Between Queen Mary and Brunel, which is better? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    So I'm stuck between picking from either Brunel or Queen Mary.
    I'm going to be studying English Literature (BA), and I'm not so sure on the uni choices I have made.

    Do you know anything about either uni regarding the english literature course?

    I know Queen Mary does rank higher for english lit, but I didn't like the area and the atmosphere of the uni. whereas brunel was just okay tbh, nothing all that great...
    They both want AAB, but queen mary wants an A in english alevel, whereas brunel want atleast a B.

    Any opinions/advice will be appreciated!

    I go to Brunel and I have stayed to do my PG (could have gone anywhere else), I have heard from other people that the atmosphere was not very appealing. My advice would be go to the University that you think you will enjoy the most and the university that you believe will provide you with the best opportunities to flourish. This is incredibly important as the university you choose will become like your second home.

    There is not much between the two and ranking vary between league table and are subjective at best. So, without sounding cliche pick the one you feel is right for you and that you will enjoy the most!
