Hi!
Is Royal Holloway, Liverpool or Leicester??
Based on rankings, reputation, campus, people and the city/surroundings?
Because I've never been to England and I'm a city person so I'm not that sure about the unis :P

Well the city itself isn't fairly big so its easy to get around and we have a great shopping centre (highcross) and is very multicultural as you may or may not have heard before. Can't really say much about the uni since I don't study there but from going there for school trips and open days its amazing. It's known for their library and facilities it offers. Their campus is compact and the different departments are closely linked, so you can't really get lost. That's about it really, ahaha don't know what else to comment on. Hope this helps !!

Yes, well I guess the 'Russel Group' are known for having prestigious unis, but Leicester isn't bad at all, the uni is ranked pretty high. :/

Why did you put Russell Group in quotes? Were you implying I spelt it wrong, made it up or something?

Liverpool is a borderline AAB–ABB uni. Leicester is an ABB uni.

Why would you say Leicester is bad? Like the uni itself or the place?

I wasn't implying anything. Also I know about the grading but I am saying that Leicester isn't as bad as you make it sound.

The person means that the uni isn't as good compared to Liverpool.

And you're an idiot. I guess Bath and Surrey which require A*s for courses such as engineering are no match for Liverpool because they're not apart of the Russell Group.

I am sure "you" weren't implying "anything".

It's relative. It's not as strong academically as Liverpool, but that doesn't mean it's poor. It isn't very well known outside of the UK however, which might pose a problem for an international student.

Do not call me an idiot and use "apart of" in a sentence.

Well clearly this person knows/has heard of the uni, and the university of Leicester is known for having a large amount of International students so it may be more comfortable for ansonyyy.

Because you'll make me spit out my coffee all over my laptop as I laugh at you. Plus your point is irrelevant.
