Exeter or sussexWatch this thread
I have offers from both Universities to study Geography Bsci, but i am having great trouble deciding which to go for. Need some help!! obviously Exeter is a Russel group but I have heardSussex is better for general enjoyment. Does anyone have any pointers that may aid my decision. Also do both offer rowing?
I am pretty sure that both offer rowing. I have a lot of friends at Exeter and they're all absolutely loving it. Then again, it has to be your decision. Your employment prospects would likely be stronger from Exeter but it depends on where you believe you would thrive!
I'm not a Geography student myself, so can't comment on which university is generally considered more prestigious for Geography in the wider world but it doesn't seem like there's too much in it.
I am at Sussex studying something else and I, personally, really enjoy it. I have found my course to be very rigorous and stimulating and and the campus has a very friendly, lively and fun atmosphere. Brighton is also a great city in which to be a student.
I have no idea if we have a rowing society though...
Make sure you've been to both unis and you've researched the course well; I would strongly advise going to applicant/visit days if you get invited to them. Good luck - I hope you find the right one for you!
With the new anonymity laws coming in about where a degree comes from, go for whichever makes you happy, Exeter has the better rep, but Sussex may not be as strenuous. You will have more time for sport at Sussex and more social (IMO)
