Above all I would say that the course matters most. It's going to take up at least 3 years of your life so pick the right one for you. There's no up or downside to either. You'll get a degree either way and applicants from separate uni's are judged on their ability and personality, not the uni they went to. More important is the uni to choose based on your prospective A-levels (I assume you're in the middle of them now). I'd assume Leeds Uni will ask for higher grades - if these are unachievable then the choice is obviously leeds met or vice versa. - Danny (Leeds Uni).

I would say look at the modules, the module structures and research areas of university. This should help you to see the wide range of modules available. University of Leeds is a Russell group university, with immense facilities for students and opportunities for students too. Look at the overall facilities both universities provide when making final judgement

how can you even compare those unis? ofc Leeds university is way higher. Leeds uni even belongs to Russell group and the amount of financial endowment is just uncomparable. they even have nobel prize winner alumni. according to 2020 complete uni guide, leeds is ranked as 14th while beckett or baguette is ranked as 121st are you kidding me? you cant go to worse uni than beckket

One question, why do you think Leeds Beckett is bad. What aspect.

Here is a strictly old-fashioned advice for whatever it might be worth, which was given to me by my lecturer during the early 1990s: If your first degree is not from at least a red-brick, make sure you remedy that in your postgrad degrees if you are doing one.

Uni of Leeds: Red-brick.
Leeds Beckett: Post-92 (ex-poly).

Whether that advice is still relevant today is more debatable, but I tend to follow it.
