I've received an unconditional offer from De Montfort for Advertising and Marketing and am seriously considering taking the offer, however the fact that it is in the same city as Leicester University puts me off a tad.
Two universities in the same city of course mean that they're going to be compared against each other more than others. Leicester Uni is much further up the league tables, and so, almost automatically, the general opinion seems to be that De Montfort is the lesser university. I see and hear people putting it down a lot and honestly, it's kind of a bummer to hear, because I really like DMU.
What I'd like to know is, does this kind of stigma carry on into your experience at De Montfort? Are you ever made to feel like the 'lesser' university, just because Leicester Uni's higher up in the league tables?
...and how to stay positive
