Hi

I'm not sure whether it's a bad idea or not but I live in Northern Ireland where we have two Universities. Queen's University and University of Ulster. I have currently put my application in for 1 course in Queen's and 4 courses in Ulster. Is it bad that I have done that? Should I have looked across the water in England at possibilities?

Courses are all computer science/software engineering based.

Thanks

If they are courses that aren't all in similar subjects then potentially it could be bad

Should have mentioned that. All of them are based around Computer Science (3x Computer Science, 2x Software Engineering)

Probably depends as well on whether or not you want to be close to your family and also the fees are so much higher across the water.
I would love to go to england but hate the thought of all the debt, so I don't know how to divide up my courses between NI and england

Hmm. Do Northern Irish universities charge less or do you, like us in Wales, get the fees part-subsidised by a grant from the regional government?

It costs 3-4k a year for Northern Irish students at Northern Irish unis. For English unis we pay full 9k.

Haha, a bit like Scotland but a little more expensive. The Welsh still get the best deal outside their home country.

Scotland is entirely free. It's absolutely bloody brilliant.

But only if you stay in Scotland! So in England, Wales, and NI, we get the best deal.
