    Hi Blixten, congratulations on getting all of those offers!

    I am a first year International Management student here at the University of Bath, so went through exactly the same process as you last year. I understand that at this stage all of the universities that you have offers from are highly ranked, therefore it is difficult to decide where to go purely on that basis. I would firstly recommend that you attend one of our offer holder days if possible. I am working with many of the Management open days this year, they will be extremely helpful in your decision making process.

    One of the main factors that attracted me to Bath was the placement opportunities. If you have selected the four year management course you will have a placement as part of your course, if you have chosen the three year version you can always change your mind. Subject to the director of studies you will be allowed to switch, I doubt that this would be a problem however. The School of Management's placement team is in-house, most universities only offer central support. The benefit of our placement team is that they have connections specific to our course, which makes their support extremely useful. We regularly have large employers visiting campus including investment banks such as Goldman Sachs and consultancies like PwC. Tomorrow Moet Hennessy are visiting campus, we then have Fidelity next Monday to give you an example. We also have centrally arranged careers events, I went to a LinkedIn profile building class yesterday ran by Danone for example.

    If you do visit our offer holder day, try to have a look around the city. Bath is a World Heritage city which makes it a great place to live. I understand that the School of Management are trying to give bedroom tours also on this open day, it is difficult to find an entire flat that agrees to it however so I can't make any promises. Feel free to check out our virtual tour though to get an idea of what the accommodation is like inside, is this somewhere you could see yourself living?

    I hope that my advice helps you with your decision, I would like to offer School of Management applicants as much support as possible in the decision making process. You can contact me directly on my thread in the University of Bath forum (just to make sure that I don't miss out anything that you say). I am on the Student Room every Wednesday.

    Good luck with your decision,

    Hayden
