    Hi, I want to study management at university and these are my 5 choices:
    -Leeds/Liverpool/Glasgow/Warwick(with foundation year)/UWE
    I am planning on making Leeds my firm choice but am unsure whether to choose warwick with a foundation year or UWE direct entrance as my insurance.
    So could anybody please offer advice on do I choose warwick with foundation year or UWE?
    Thanks for your time.

    Hmm I know you have probably heard this A LOT, but I really believe this is just one of those choices you have to make based on your own personal, instinctual preferences, not things that others can tell you like uni rankings etc. Look at both and go with the one you think you'd a) be happiest on and b) do the best in. Consider factors like the city, the staff, the campus, the accommodation.. and only consider Warwick if you really really love the course and would happily study it for 4 years or more. One thing I will say though is that Bristol is a lovely place, living near there myself, and the teaching quality is supposed to be damn good for lots of courses.

    Don't pick your firm/insurance officially until April. Picking early gains you nothing.

    Look at both universities and ask questions about how likely you are to get accommodation as an insurance student. Guarantees and availability differ hugely between universities.

    Find out about success rates and teaching environment for the foundation. Some are taught by local colleges or private companies. Some have massive failure rates. Ask questions and ask to be put in contact with a student who finished the foundation and is now on the main degree.
