    Hi, I've recently recieved 2 unconditionals for university courses, one for Chemical Physics at Glasgow and one for Physics(f) at Strathclyde. I'm not sure which one to take. Would anyone be able to give me advice on the pros and cons of each one?

    Thanks,

    surely this is a case of, do you want to study physics or chemical physics? so the univerisities shouldnt matter in this case.

    do you want to continue studying areas of chemistry such as inorganic and physical, spectrosocpy etc or do you just want to study physics

    imo it is difficult to make a list of pros and cons because it will come down to personal interests with these courses

    example for me
    - cons that I would miss out of a few areas of phyiscs
    - I would have to do things like spectroscopy and other areas of chemistry
    - I assume you would have to do chem labs and I hate them aha

    the only pro for me would be I would get to study catalysis as I think that is quite interesting but thats it, because my interests lie mainly in physics so anything that takes away from me studying physics and maths is a con for me

    Glasgow is better known and you can always switch your course if you don't like Chemical Physics.
