    Hello everyone! I'm currently experiencing some anxiety as I'm not sure which university to choose. I've applied to marketing programs in the UK and got offers from Leeds, Lancaster and Queen Mary's University. I understand all of them are great, but it seems Leeds and Lancaster are higher in all the rankings. However, Queen Mary is located in London and that's what I was looking for... Maybe someone has any advice?
    I'm also looking forward to hear opinions on Queen Mary's Marketing department from current students or those who already graduated. Thanks!

    Hello! Thank you for your answer!!! I would like to know if it is far for central London, if the atmosphere and people are nice, also, if you generally like it! I want to do something to do with fashion in the future.. so I'd like to know if you do anything creative in the marketing subject. Furthermore, I'd like to know what residence you like the most! And, if there are other unis in London you find better..?

    Hey there!

    Lancaster & Leeds are top choices for that discpline. Queen Mary is just a decent university.

    However, you should take into consideration the modules that are being offered by each university in order to see which of them are more inspirational to you.

    I had the same offers for master degree and I picked Leeds not only for the reasons i said above but also because of the cost. I have booked accommodation with 400 pounds per month while in London I would pay 1000.

    I thought we were talking about postgraduate studies not for undergraduate. My fault. Anyway, I believe that good university is a good university. I dont really believe that Queen Mary will deter you of having good opportunities in terms of job. The main thing you have to think about is the modules, the support of each university & the career service.

    Your effort should be the same regardless of the university and its up to you to exploit and chase the opportunities that will be emerged.

    Afternoon, haha
    But I've always wondered if that's really true 🤔 Like do they really have good rep where the job opportunities are concerned even if you get a 2:1?

    If you study in reputable university (among top25), normally you have good chances to get into a good job.

    Although I have seen companies which ask 2.1, I dont really believe that plays so crucial role. In contrast, dissertation seems to be of great importance as you can "sale"it better to someone.
