I've got offers from both northumbria and Leeds to study fashion communication/ marketing. I'm really struggling with which one to choose as my firm (they both have the same grade requirements). I've done pros and cons for both:
Closer to home
Better university in general, good student union
More business based course (I prefer this)
Placement year available and good graduate prospects
But the accommodation isn't great, it's much bigger than Newcastle
Don't like the area as much or feel as comfortable in the city
Really good accommodation, more likely to be put somewhere I want to be (you make three choices and almost always get one of them)
Was always my first choice until I visited Leeds
Love the area and have experienced nightlife' nicer feel of the student area and I visualise myself there/ feel more comfortable (maybe because I've visited it more than Leeds) - more sociable?
Easier transport around the city, more compact
If you have any experience with either courses, or know people who have, please help me decide! It's not just about the course for me as I want to be in a city with a buzzing social life and nice student area. I've visited both so already know what they're like, just can't choose between them!

Hey, Northumbria was my first choice for FC and Leeds was my 5th, I didn't even bother going to the interview in the end as Northumbria gave me an unconditional so that's where I'm going in September, I loved it! I have already sorted my accommodation and I'm in Liberty Quay (5 min walk from uni) you pick if you want a classic or premium en suite and that's what you get. Let me know if you want anymore info on that and let me know what you decided to do in the end!
