University of Bath vs Univeristy of Warwick watch

    • Thread Starter

    So, I've applied to study Biology/Biological science at Bath (offer for AAA) and Warwick (offer for AAB).
    I am having difficulties deciding which university I should firm as I have been to both universities and I have liked both a lot. The course however at Warwick is an integrated masters course compared to a bachelor of science degree at Bath.
    I would appreciate help with the differences between the two universities / the two courses and which I should maybe choose out of Bath and Warwick.I think Warwick is a more reputable university, although the university/campus seems very isolated, whereas the course at Bath seems to be better from league tables than Warwick.
    Any help is much appreciated!!

    Bath is better for your subject.
    Bath is a better city.
    Bath has a placement year (don't underestimate this).

    Warwick has a better overall reputation.
    Warwick will give you a masters.

    I'd choose Bath in your case, but really it is up to what you prefer. I think both universities are great so just pick where you feel you'd be more comfortable.

    I am siding slightly more towards Bath tbh.
    I don't suppose you know what the facilities are like for Biology there? They do list them on their website but I don't really know what any of it means nor if most other universities (such as Warwick) have them also.

    Thanks for any advice you can give!

    I have a friend who does Biology at Bath, and I don't recall him complaining about any of the Biology facilities so they must be pretty good. He's also applying for placements, including Kew, which must be nice to work at as a biologist.

    If Warwick doesn't offer a placement year then that is something to think about.

    Don't worry too much about league tables - both are good universities and apart from that, it's up to you in how well you do and how involved you get and what experience you get for your own success.
