    If we are going strictly on reputation then it's arguably Warwick, Bath, York, Nottingham, East Anglia starting with the uni with the best reputation and working downwards. However overall they are all very good unis and uni reputation doesn't guarentee happiness at that uni or a job afterwards. You need to compare course content, facilities, campuses, location e.c.t- try and visit them all if you can, Nottingham for example being near a medium sized city will offer a different experience to a relatively isolated uni like Warwick.

    Thank you for your reply. I really like the courses of all 5, East Anglia probably being my least favourite ( although the description of the course is vague), I was just wondering whether anyone had anything specific to those Universities - Open days or actually studying at one.

    I studied at UEA, although I didn't do Economics, so I can answer general questions about the uni.

    I know this is quite broad, but how did you find it?
    I would love to know a couple of major positives/negatives if you could

    Gneral Positives
    -Great atmosphere on campus, especially when the sun is out and everyone is sitting in the square.
    -Small campus, so pretty much everything is within a 10 minute walk.
    -The LCR, the campus nightclub.

    Negatives
    -The Hubs which handle administration such as timetables and coursework aren't always the most efficient

    There's certainly plenty to do here at UEA and in Norwich. Here's just a few ideas! https://www.uea.ac.uk/study/undergra...-do-in-norwich

    We would also recommend taking a look at our student bloggers and vloggers to get their insight on what it's like to study here: https://www.uea.ac.uk/study/undergra.../student-blogs

    There are some really lovely reviews of the university on this forum, so do step into the UEA forum to read them. For example, this one.
