    I chose BMC and best decision i have made. Teaching far more personal, get a lot of opportunities of going out and visiting places etc as class smaller. Only bad thing is 3rd year in magee but all 3rd years i have heard from love it there and you are only there just over 30 days

    Hi guys

    I need your help...

    Basically, I have been offered a place for UU Magee, UU BMC and QUB. I know the obvious choice might be to choose queens but I think the fact that UU BMC only has 25 in a class will give more 1-2-1 teaching which I feel is better for social work.

    My question is - if you guys had to choose, what would you go for? UU Magee is completely out, but its the other two that is wrecking my brain!

    Any help at all would be really appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Ryan

    I have to choose between UU BMC (3yr) and QUB (3yr)!
    Really unsure of what to do, because both are good for different reasons. The facilities at QUB (library etc) are excellent, and the surrounding area is great, as well as travel is easy, however I have heard (don't know if it's strictly true) that UU's lecturers are much more willing to help and are more attentive, however I don't know how I feel about the 3rd year being in Magee!
    Anyone provide any help?

    Hi have u made ur choice yet on ucas? I am doing the rgr social wrk and got offers for both queens and magee also. I chose magee having spoken to people who have completed it at both universities. altho queens wuld have been alot handier for me i have heard from friends of friends that uu focuses on both academics and practical and can make it quite fun in the ways u r assessed. Queens apparently not so much. Before speakin to these people i was goin on peoples thoughts and opinions of each uni but it was very useful to hear facts. Its very much up to personal preference. Also a number of people who r travelin to magee for their final yr could group together an do a car share myb r something as tht is wot sumone i spoke to had said she had done? hope this helps
