    Which should I choose for business postgrad?

    I'm leaning more towards Northumbria (Newcastle Business School) and Birkbeck but I also like the modules at Aston - I just don't want to live in Birmingham.

    Which university will it be easier for me to get a job later on?

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think that if you do the full time courses at Birkbeck you will be having evening lectures. Bear in mind also that the main student body at Birkbeck is doing part time courses. Although there are many other institutions nearby (at least to the Bloomsbury campus) where full time students study (SOAS, UCL, Queen Mary's, LSE, KCL…).

    Yep, that's pretty much the only thing I dislike about Birkbeck, I heard classes are from 6 to 9.

    I don't know what your ultimate aim is, but if I had the choice i would try to get into a Russell Group university. If you're going to be in London there is a world of choice.

    I also got an offer from Newcastle and I'll most probably choose them though I really really prefer the modules and overall environment at Birkbeck. My only issue is that they're not participants in the Graduate Entrepreneur visa scheme unlike other unis.

    PS, is Newcastle University Business School and Northumbria University Newcastle Business School the same thing? Like graduating with a Newcastle degree instead of Northumbria?
