Which one is a better insurance
UEA has a really good pharmacy department and offer ABBB
Durham has a new department, but is an amazing uni and only want A in chemistry and A in biology
My firm will be AAB uni.

Which should I do as insurance UEA or Durham?

Durham is typically better and it's worth taking advantage of its new course with its relatively 'low' entry standards. However, prestige isn't everything. Durham is quite an acquired taste and some may dislike it. Visit both, you may fall in love with UEA. Good luck!

I've been to UEA, it's a nice uni with lots of applicants gaining pre reg ad a job within a few months of graduating, which is good.

Thank you for the replies.

Durham! I'm from Norwich and my dad went to Durham, he often says that the cities are very similar (small, river-based). Both cities are safe and nice, also quiet too.

But in terms of reputation and just generally speaking as to which is better - Durham, no contest here.

UEA , for sure as it is currently ranked one of the best schools in pharmacy . Durham is a top university but the pharmacy course have not been fully accredited yet. If you want to go to the best university but possibly not the best pharmacy school (it is still a brilliant school of pharmacy) then UCL should have been one of your choices.

Yes, going to Durham would gain you some status now, but four years down the line , you have to start thinking about your pre-reg place which is is getting much more competitive. Therefore, I would go with the school that have already established a good rapport with the big employers.

However, that is only my opinion/advice , it is your choice/ preference !

Definitely agree with the UCL comment!

It's a difficult choice, with lots of factors. I'd go for Durham
