    Which Engineering course is this for? I'd say Southampton is much more reputable than Nottingham in terms of their engineering departments.

    Hmm, I don't really think there is anything between them.

    Southampton's engineering course has an amazing reputation - I'm sure Nottingham does as well, but engineering is really what Southampton uni is renowned for. It's its best course, has the best facilities etc.

    But congrats to you on having 2 such amazing offers!

    Not trying to diss Southampton, but I've never really heard this outside of TSR. I'm sure they're both fine universities, and that one of the biggest factors in the decision will be things like the location, and how much they (the applicant) felt like they liked the departments.

    This all depends on which engineering course you are going for?

    I think it is more of an "international" thing. In Asia, Southampton is definitely more reputable than Nottingham in engineering. (But honestly, they are both great universities so personal preference matters more anyways...)
