    I'd like to get some feedback from someone who's actually studying (or has studied) archaeology at the university of Manchester since I got an offer for it and I'm really not sure if I should go

    Hello

    Have you been into the Manchester uni forum and asked this question?

    Have you visited the uni? What makes you feel unsure?

    Manchester itself is a pretty awesome student city but I appreciate it's not for everyone.

    I haven't, to be honest I didn't know there was a specific forum..

    I haven't visited the university as I don't live in the Uk and the reason I'm not sure is because I got another offer for UCL to do anthropology (in Manchester I would do both archaeology and anthropology) so I don't really know which one to choose..
    all I know is that I've been to London before and I loved it whereas I know pretty much nothing about Manchester and UCL has a really good ranking but going there would mean no archaeology which is a subject I would like to do as well

    This is a tough one, but don't worry we'll work it out

    Manchester course: archaeology and anthropology
    ULC: Anthropology

    Do you have any career aspirations that relate to archaeology?

    Manchester is a brilliant student city and is an excellent university. Manchester is also cheaper to live.

    UCL accommodation is rated quite poorly.

    First of all thank you for taking the time to reply

    I'm not completely sure about a possible career but I really like the idea of being able to do field work and excavation
    In fact, even if I were to do only anthropology I would want to specialise in evolution and paleoanthropology

    I'm really attracted to both subjects although I have to say that by looking at the course content, the anthropology that I would do at Manchester is mainly cultural stuff and very little evolutionary anthropology

    I also want to spend a period of time outside of Europe and UCL would allow me to spend my entire 3rd year abroad whereas in Manchester I can only do one semester in my second year
