    I have an offer from both Durham and St Andrews to study philosophy next year.I've already decided on my firm but I am struggling to choose between Durham and St Andrews for my insurance choice.Any guidance/advise? Either on the course in particular or university in general.Thanks.

    I'm in a similar position and leaning towards St Andrews (though I haven't received an offer from them yet) because the course is better suited to my interests and I much prefer the town.

    Are you interested in a specific area of philosophy in particular? From what I've gathered, Durham has a greater focus on continental philosophy, philosophy of mind and history & philosophy of science whereas St Andrews seems to be better for Analytic philosophy, logic etc. The St Andrews course also seems to have greater scope for specialisation in later years.
    Aside from the course, I think it's also important to consider the differences in degree length, structure, location and so on - Durham and St Andrews are quite different in those respects.

    Durham and St Andrews are roughly the same.

    Personally, Durham>St Andrews.
How are you feeling in the run-up to Results Day 2018?
