Hi there,

We've got a surge of 'x' vs 'y' vs 'z' uni threads at the moment, so I thought that we'd combine them all in here.

Please post which ones you're considering and then hopefully you'll get people's two cents.

Alternatively, you can view the league tables in the following links:


Please keep it nice and friendly.

Hi there,

I'm trying to decide what is a better university and what to go for in in September 2015. I've been offered a conditional offer at both universities so it's just weighing up the pros and cons. Please let me know what you think of the university in terms of accommodation, student life and cost of living in the city.

I would preferably live in halls as I've been told it's a much better Uni experience and you can socialise with your hall mates better. I do drive but it isn't absolutely essential there be a car park space there (although I would prefer). I'm also studying computer science so wherever that may be studied at the University, if it's quite far from the halls, I would like to drive there.

Let me know what you think and I'll add more information about myself if required...

Thanks

Luke

Having received all my responses from UCAS, It has come to the moment that I have to finally make a decision of where to go; however this decision is proving to be incredibly hard. Im looking for some information/ honest reviews on Edge Hill, Winchester and Falmouth Uni's. I'm looking to study Film and Television production so reviews on this specific courses would be even more helpful.

Thank you!

Go on WhatUni.com. You can find reviews for the Uni's as well as filter them by subject. All are done by students and some are rated so you can see which reviews are most helpful

None. Study extra hard and go through adjustment.
Real talk.

Hi!

I was wondering which of the universities I applied to are the most highly regarded by employers, citizens of the UK:

- University of Manchester
- King's College London
- University of Glasgow
- University of St. Andrews
- University of Edinburgh

Also, how prestigious is the University of Manchester? Any information is hugely appreciated.

Edit: I'm not from the UK, that's why I'm asking.

They've all got excellent reputations.

Look for the one where you think you will be happiest. Think about
- which uni's modules do you prefer?
- do you want to live in a small rural town (ie St Andrews) or a large city
- do you prefer the structure of Scottish or English degrees?
- can you afford to live in London?

I'm stuck between University of Manchester, University of Southampton, University of York & University of Sheffield for Electrical & Electronic Engineering?
Any thoughts?

I literally only did a few that came to mind. I'll add them in now - obviously I can't have an exhaustive list of all the rankings as there are so many websites that do this nowadays!

To be honest, I'd absolutely love to study at King's. However, as I'm from Europe, studying in Scotland ''only'' costs 2000 GBP compared to England which costs 9000 GBP... I just don't know whether it's worth it to live and study in a city I enjoy most OR to have a lot less debt at the end of my study.
