I've received offers from the above and I'm struggling to choose. The degree I'm studying is a mix of Information technology and management for business. So going off the business and technology (computers) side of these unis.
I know Manchester is probably the most 'prestigious' and is in the Russel group. I believe it's more internationally recognised.
However, Loughborough has very good student satisfaction and is highly ranked in most league tables (I know they're don't mean all that much).
Lancaster is also highly ranked and looks like it has a very nice campus!
I'm not sure if I like the surrounding area of Manchester, but I haven't spent enough time there to be sure. I'm also not sure if I'd prefer campus based unis or not haha.
So which one of these uni's would you chose and why?
Sorry for the long question and for not knowing anything haha, cheers.

I went to Lancaster and it was really nice to be on campus, the comp sci. dept has a really good reputation but it's a bit remote unless you have a car, though the management school is really good. Manchester is huge and you will never see the lecturers so much I think, but probably also good if you want a job as well. I live in Manchester now and the clubs and shopping and stuff is really good but I don't think I would have studied so hard if I was here for uni!
