    Hi
    I really need help, I am looking at Business studies courses and it is really difficult
    to tell what the differences are with the course between universities.

    Some uni's require a higher entry level than others, what does this really mean?

    Am i right to assume the course is probably the same, they just want a higher standard of people?

    I dont know therefore in choosing a uni, obviously I look at the course (but they seem similier) is it then about the feel of the place?

    Any advice very much appreciated

    At uni it's very different the courses will be different for instance if your doing it one uni may teach c++ and java while another may teach java and pascal it's set by the university as such some courses are harder than others.

    It's not like a level or GCSE's

    To some extent, but also it's a supply and demand factor.

    Find the course with the right content, at a university that you like.

    Id agree abive supply and demand, which in turn lest them ask for better students. In return you might get access to better teaching staff and a more respected course, even though the basics should be the same.
