    Which university is better when opting for Business Management in terms of employ-ability and prestige? Is it University of Nottingham or Surrey?

    Nottingham is a Russell Group University, so I imagine that might increase its prestige. Employ-ability is about the same.

    I would think Surrey as there's the potential for professional placement at companies such as Ernst & Young, HP, Microsoft amand Sony as well as an integrated masters.

    It being RG just means that it gets more funding for research. Nottingham, is probably better known, yes.

    No RG status is misleading and probably why unis like Bristol are going down the drain.

    If a uni is in the RG it is there due to its research, it just so happens that the good unis for research are usually decent unis for undergraduate courses.

    I'm really confused between them because
    1) Surrey has a professional placement but Nottingham doesn't
    2) Nottingham is RG status and Surrey isn't
    3) Ranking of Surrey for business management are higher than Nottingham
    4) World ranking of Nottingham is much higher than Surrey

    Also, as an international student, safety wise is Nottingham safe?

    You could work with those companies anyway at Notts, there's no exclusivity between them and Surrey.
