Lincoln or Anglia Ruskin - Someone please help!!

    • Thread Starter

    I got accepted into Anglia Ruskin, but transferred out to the University of Lincoln (mainly for the league tables) but recent tables have emerged showing that ARU is doing way better. I have friends there I miss and miss me back but I'm not entirely sure about returning just for friends. That being said, my friend count at Lincoln is 0.

    Lincoln is a great university, and Im super excited for the erasmus scheme that will mean I have a chance at studying at the University of Bergen (which out ranks both universities globally), that's more or less whats keeping me here.

    Some league tables show ARU to be higher and others show Lincoln to be higher, I just have no idea what to believe!

    At ARU, I had excellent grades but no social life because I commuted/lived at home. Whereas at Lincoln I have the freedom to do whatever (with the obvious financial constraints). I feel Lincoln better prepares me for my degree (Law) as the modules seem more thorough and the university does more to prepare me for the workplace.

    Could someone just give me some advice as to what to do? I have no clear option I prefer to take, so a third person perspective would be really helpful!

    Thank you!
