Hello, I am torn between studying psychology at Surrey and Loughborough. I have been to their open days but I'm still not sure. Can anyone tell me what life/the courses are like there to help me make up my mind? Thank you

I can't really tell you about the courses, as I'm going to study something different at a different uni, however the town of Loughborough is really nice, it's close to Leicester, Nottingham, Derby etc., the student union is regarded as one of the best in the country. The uni staff seems friendly and intelligent. The facilities are also nice, the campus looks great. The nightlife in Loughborough is not too bad. I would definitely recommend it to you, I have no clue about Surrey though.

Hey there! I understand your problem!! Although I had applied for different courses than the ones you applied for, I got offers from both Loughborough and Surrey and afterwards I couldn't really make my mind up on which uni to choose but in the end I went for Surrey as it is the best for the course I want to study, it has a really good reputation for employability, the facilities are better and it ranks among the top ten unis in the UK. Loughborough is a really good uni as well, for almost everything I must say but I personally fell that surrey was the right choice for me! I
Best of luck with your decision !!

I'm trying to make this decisions too - for an engineering course anyway. I have no idea how I'm going to make my mind up, both look great but lboro have given the lower offer. I don't wanna insure with lboro and end up with private accommodation://///////

Hi Curtis

Great to hear you're considering us as your firm choice

While we are only able to guarantee halls accommodation for firm choice applicants, many of our insurance choice students still secure halls accommodation. Either way, we promise to help all of our students find University-approved accommodation - either on campus or through an approved off-campus provider. In both cases, you'd be affiliated to a University hall and so you wouldn't have to worry about missing out!

If you've got any further questions, you can give our Accommodation Centre a call on 01509222258. Alternatively, you can send them an email at [email protected].
Hope this helps,

Teresa

Hi Nush

We've spoken to the Psychology Department and you'll be looking at around 12 contact hours per week in your first year. You'll be expected to work increasingly independently throughout the course, and so this will drop to 10 contact hours in your second year and 8 hours in your final year.

Hope this helps
