    This September I will be going to university to study sociology with criminology and I have no idea wher to go. Brunel is far enough from home for me to be able to move out and close enough so I can come home if i really needed to, via the tube. However I really like Coventry too and My best friend is also going so I won't be entirely alone. This has become a really hard decision fo me, what would you choose ?

    The lecturers aren't great or helpful and the social life is pretty poor compared to other unis

    Coventry. Wouldn't recommend Brunel, many people from my cohort transferred to other universities this year to say the least.

    Was that due to teaching? What caused them to transfer?

    The teaching, the most vital part being at uni. They left because they weren't happy with the level of the quality of the teaching. Some wanted to leave, but they didn't have good enough grades to leave Brunel and so were stuck (quite a few of my friends), whilst others smashed it and were over the moon to leave.

    Of course some were happy to stay, however there was a common feeling amongst my cohort that the lecturers were not up to scratch and seemed like they didn't really care either.

    Ohhh I'm sorry to hear that, but I'm still leaning towards Brunel since I will be more closer to home and most people tend to dislike Coventry.
