You might find yourself academically out of depth at Nottingham too. I transferred from a not great uni for physics to a top 5 one and found it a huge step up, I'd say my grades suffered.
Oh my god, that's what I'm worried about too!
I'm actually surprised Nottingham even gave me an offer, I've had a poor academic history in general, but that was mostly because I had a tough time dealing with my personal problems.
But after seeing a sample timetable for engineering students at Nottingham, I was kinda shocked to see that almost every day had a 9 am start, with days being very packed with lectures/workshops.
The thing is though, I don't know whether Hull might be equally as busy with the timetable next year or that it would still be the same difficulty?
So far from comparing the modules at both unis, Nottingham has 9 modules that are worth 10 credits each, while Hull has 6 modules worth 20 credits each?
Obviously Hull has less modules, but these modules being 20 credits might mean they are higher in content than the 10 credit modules at Nottinham?
Also, I don't know if it's a good idea to stay at a uni where I know I have an easy time, wouldn't that mean that my degree will be of a lesser quality because it's less rigorous?
Not that I mind, I would be glad to have an easy time, but it's the employers I'm worried about, I'm worried that they know about this, which is why they target higher ranked unis for job offers over lower ranked unis?
