Better uni or better for my subject?Watch
Also note that the Russell Group is a lobby group for research-led universities - members have to pay to join. While all RG unis are good, not all good unis are in the RG.
When you have decided where YOU like best go there. Every person may decide differently.
So I want to study psychology at uni but am struggling to decide whether to apply for bath(ranked second best for psychology in the uk) or a Russell University such as Bristol (ranked 9th), Glasgow (5th) or Durham (6th). Thanks
Remember that each ranking table shows the universities in slightly different places (especially the Guardian's, as it gives more weight to things like student satisfaction), so a difference in ranking of less than 10 is usually quite negligible.
On the other hand, you should go for the uni that's better for your subject; Cambridge isn't the best for everything.
