Ranking isn't everything - many of the tables tell different things. Which subject are you planning to study?

Yeah, you're right. I'm planning on studying psychology, but I'm an international student so I want to make sure I'm in a place where I feel comfortable. Norwich is a bit far from London which is kinda putting me off going there.

Yes, transport wise Brookes is better and, if you are in hall you get a free Oxford bus pass which is useful. The new building on the Headington campus is amazing -

obv UEA. If you are not from UK, you honestly wont mind which city you are in (unless in your country people look at such little things too) and UEA gives you far better start than Oxfrod Brookes, especially in psychology since so many people do this course

Yes I have visited both of them. I liked them both, but preferred UEA's campus.

I don't agree - at Brookes you have access to the Bodleian library and some of the best facilities in the country.

so? There's Internet for that.
future employers don't care if you had access to the best library in the country but about the degree you get. If she/he has a chance to study at UEA which is one of the top unis then I don't know why they should choose Brooke's.

UEA is not a top uni by any stretch of the imagination - it's as good as your poor use of apostrophes ...

ehh don't bring it to the personal level. UEA is way higher in the ranking than Brookes. Ranking isn't everything, I agree, but when you compare place 50 with place 150 then it does matter.

Which rankings? They ALL vary ... you cannot get the materials in the Bodleian on the internet.

UEA is 10 places above here - hardly worth worrying about when you can live in the best student city in the country.
