    LOL I am sure people are gonna hate me for this thread.

    I am basically going to list everything I am looking for in a Uni, and hoping people will reply saying '' yes! i go _______ and it has all of that! '' or ''here is a list I think fit that! ''

    I am sorry by the way lol

    ________________________________ _______________

    * Location - Definitely in a thriving city or town. Lots of local amenities, transport etc. University close to town (within 30 mins walk). Plenty of entertainment, leisure facilities etc

    *Entry requirements - Generally for Business, BBB- CCC

    *Accommodation - EN SUITE! Fresh, clean, comfortable. Not old and scabby. On campus or VERY near. 24 hour high speed internet access in all rooms. Gyms/swimming pools nearby definitely a plus. Rent around £70 - £90

    * Good reputation - maybe from 30-60 on the league tables?

    * Good emplyment links

    * Option to study in America for a year, and a sandwhich placement


    SO far, I am thinking of Exeter and UEA. Am I right and can anyone suggest anything else?

    Rent is a bit expensive.
    Sometimes a quiet and nice small town is also acceptable.
    By the way, What is "Sandwich Placement"? Anyone can explain it for me?

    I liked UEA but it's a bit out of the way, in the middle of nowhere...good for the live music scene though.

    A sandwich placement puts you in paid work experience in your third year.

    Well, speaking for Exeter.

    I wouldn't say Exeter was thriving (on the scale of manchester etc) ,but its busy, has great transport and leisure. The Uni is 20 mins from the town. Entertainment is good, a few big name bands, lots of bars and 4 decent clubs.
    *Entry requirements - Generally for Business, BBB- CCC
    The entry requirements for Business at exeter vary from AAB-BBB. Business is higher than alot of courses but the course is good.
    *Accommodation - EN SUITE! Fresh, clean, comfortable. Not old and scabby. On campus or VERY near. 24 hour high speed internet access in all rooms. Gyms/swimming pools nearby definitely a plus. Rent around £70 - £90
    Your asking alot for £70-90! Well Exeter can deff. do en suite and close to campus. The've got nice new halls too. And the internet comes as standard. Gym very close, but the indoor swimming pool is on the other campus (30 mis prob). The outdoor is close. The thing is that a standard room is nearly £100 here so en suite will be around £110.
    * Good reputation - maybe from 30-60 on the league tables?
    We're 17 at the moment I think so no probs there
    * Good emplyment links

    * Option to study in America for a year, and a sandwhich placement
    No probs (depending on the course).

    And I loved my 1st Year!

    Great thanks everyone. My problem is I have missed all the open days, so when it comes to the next round I will be visiting after I have applied, therefore I am relying on you guys to inform me!

    Can anyone tell me if Exeter's location is better than Leicester?

    Fits the description of entry requirements, reputation and accommodation (apart from the swimming pool). Not sure whether Colchester can be called a "thriving town or city" though (even though it's not as bad as some people make it out to be).

    There's nothing wrong with Colchester at all :cool: Except the insane congestion during rush hour around the town centre way.

    i'm biased here, but hey- Dundee

    * Location - Definitely in a thriving city or town. Lots of local amenities, transport etc. University close to town (within 30 mins walk). Plenty of entertainment, leisure facilities etc

    yep, dundee is a really growing town, about two-thirds of the population is students and the town enough is big enough to be interesting, but small enough to walk everywhere. the furthest halls out are just under a mile from campus. and it's 10 minutes from campus to the town centre.

    *Entry requirements - Generally for Business, BBB- CCC

    it's about 220 points for business, but there are courses that specialise in law or other areas within business

    *Accommodation - EN SUITE! Fresh, clean, comfortable. Not old and scabby. On campus or VERY near. 24 hour high speed internet access in all rooms. Gyms/swimming pools nearby definitely a plus. Rent around £70 - £90

    yep, has all these. the best lot of halls are self-catered, on campus, on suite, with broadband and next to the sports centre (i was gutted i didn't get placed there, but mine's still nice). the majority of halls are on campus and they're modernising quite a lot of them

    * Good reputation - maybe from 30-60 on the league tables?

    dundee has got a good reputation, the business school is called Abertay and is technically seperate so this is the only area i'm a bit vague on.

    * Good emplyment links

    it looked good to me!

    * Option to study in America for a year, and a sandwhich placement

    it is a sandwich placement, not sure about america (didn't really look very much)

    Quick note - En-suite catered rooms at Exeter are £115 a week now, and enhanced are £108. Don't know about self catered though - but it isn't that difficult to research.

    Just because you've missed the open days doesn'r mean you can't visit the uni anyway. OK so you won't get a guided tour but you can still get a feel of the place.
