    Hey guys

    So I have unconditional offers from both the University of Reading and the University of Birmingham in Politics & International Relations, and I have to choose between the two of them as my insurance choice. I'm really torn between both.. any good advice/pros and cons for them?

    Thanks :-)

    Hi,

    Congratulations on the unconditional offer! I few things I really like about Reading which might help you decide. We have a beautiful campus, with a lovely lake. Its great for walking around when the weathers nice, and makes a great break from coursework or lecturers. We also have have a great students union, which is in the top ten in the UK. There is lots going on, so student club nights on a Wednesday and Saturday. There is also quiz and karaoke, and comedy nights. We also have 150 sports clubs and societies, in a range of things such as lacrosse, netball, football, drama, dance, quidditch and baking. We are also close to town, but not right in it, so we have the perks of having a town centre, like the shops, train station and clubs and bars, but also the perks of having a campus with numerous bars, a shop and a bank on.

    Hope this helps and feel free to ask me any other questions.

    Hi guys, could you give me an advice/help?
    I am an international student, coming to UK for a masters in Project Management (Construction).Which University is better? Reading University, Brookes or UCL? Apart to UCL that I am still waiting for a response, the other 2 gave me an offer.
    Each ranking says different things, I want to have a personal opinion from you.
    Thanks
