    Hey!

    So I've been offered a place at both universities to study Social Work in areas that are quite good in (West Midlands and Greater Manchester) as I don't live in either I was wondering if anyone had any advice or had studied at either university?

    I'm swaying towards Birmingham because the course is strictly statutory placement based however I do like the feel of Manchesters student population as a hole with the other unis. 😐

    Thanks in advance!

    Birmingham is a lot higher ranked than Salford and has higher satisfaction ratings. Birmingham sounds more like what you want too

    Cheers, I'm thinking that only thing that puts me off is Birmingham has a thesis and Salford doesn't lol
