    Hi there!

    I hold offers for a Media Management or Marketing postgrad programme at these universities and am contemplating which offer I should accept. What are the Unis like (which one is better?) and how about the cities and the living costs?
    Your help is very much appreciated!

    Thank you

    Hey mrilly

    I went to Birmingham and absolutely loved it. Most Postgrads will live in Selly Oak or Harborne which is walkable. I think the campus is beautiful, red brick and everything is in one place.

    The business school is relatively new and compact and it's opposite the main campus and student union. I considered if for an MSc in Business but unfortunately they didn't do it part time which is what I needed.

    I stayed on and lived in the city for three years after I graduated and worked in the city centre. Rent for the city centre where you can walk everywhere is considerable cheaper than London.

    Manchester is also a really popular choice, like Birmingham the city is great and the uni itself is really reputable. I had it as one of my offers but I just didn't fall in love with the campus.

    I'm afraid I don't know much about Glasgow.

    Have you visited any of these unis yet?
