Hi! I am applying for Business Management/ Business as an Undergraduate Student. I have already chosen Edinburgh, Exeter and St Andrews, but I'm having a hard time choosing between Bath and Durham, and King's College and City. My predictions are A*AB.

Bath is closer to London (where I live), and is a great uni, but only has 60 places to offer with loads of competition, while Durham is easier to get into (as far as I know), but seems very boring to me (no good towns nearby). At least Bath has Bristol not far away.

King's has a much better reputation that City, and the people at City did not look like great students despite the fact that the course is considered to be one of the best there.

What do you think? I need urgent advice!

Thanks!

Well in from my knowledge, I believe Bath would be the best place to study business. Their two 6 month placement programme is an invaluable experience which certainly would boost your CV when finding a job.

Obviously in terms of reputation Durham would be up their but I'm not sure if they are renoun for business. Likewise Kings and City are both good unis but I would immediately rule out City.

The decision is up to you, you need to decide what you want to get out of uni not only academically, but socially. Do you want live in London? Do you want to live near Scotland? Or perhaps a quiet but beautiful city like Bath may capture your heart. Go and visit the unis I think that's the best thing to do.

Yes, that's what I'm thinking. Bath has a great reputation, and even though Durham is a great uni, its business course is not really a great one. I'd like to access London easily, which makes Bath the best choice, really, as it will only take 1:40 by train, which is fine by me.

Either way, thanks!
