    I love the look of both of these unis. I know I need to decide my firm and insurance SOON as the accomodation is going so quickely. I know Northumbria is probably the better uni of the two but I think I prefer the course modules they offer at Nottingham Trent.

    The main thing that puts me off Northumbria is the distance from where I am now and where my closest friends are. Should I really let this affect me though? I'm not sure if I should go to Northumbria as its the better one of the two / may be more employable / I may get a better degree / it sounds better.

    Any advice?

    Only 5% of applicants have chosen their firms....accommodation will not run out.

    Don't be pressured into a decision by accommodation worries - people applying to both universities through clearing in August will end up with somewhere to live - you have a LOT of time to make this decision and you should use it.

    Go with whatever will make you happiest.

    I've firmed Northumbria and managed to get an earlybird offer on accommodation but I would not worry as there will be plenty of accommodation, it just depends how picky you are with what you want!

    Have you been and visited both unis?

    I'm going to Northumbria this Saturday and then Nottingham on the 12th of next month, hoping I'll be able to decide by how much I like or dislike Northumbria though

    I was really impressed with the facilities. I've booked accommodation that isn't ran by Northumbria though that's more near central Newcastle 😊 Atleast you'll visit both so you'll have a better idea! Good luck
