    University of Leeds - BSc Accounting and Finance (with foundation)
    Reasons I would go for Leeds:
    - Ranked 1st for accounting and triple accreditation.
    - Top Students Union
    - Great graduate prospects

    Durham University - BA Accounting and Management (with foundation year)
    Reasons for Durham:
    - 6th in UK (Leeds 14th) BUT ranked 20th for Accounting (TheGuardian)
    - More prestigious status
    - Leeds technically has 2 years where the course is taught by the Lifelong centre (year 2 half half between business school) WHEREAS as far as I am asware, Durham only has one year of foundation the rest is taught normally.

    Forget about rankings and prestige, what course do you like best? There will be differences in the module options (especially in years three and four), which do you prefer? Is location an issue for you, do you prefer small towns and pubs or big urban cultural centres?

    That's probably not very helpful but there's not much anyone can really say, this is your decision, you need to make it.
