    Whichever one you like least, I suppose.

    Going to Coventry University's London campus won't be much of a university experience, I suspect.

    Hey JaskaranSingh17,

    Hope you don't mind me offering a bit of advice!

    I would recommend looking at the modules offered in each course, and comparing them to see which interests you more. You can find a list of the modules on the International Business Management course page on our website, here. If you click on the module (underlines in blue) you'll be taken to a page describing that module

    Another important thing to consider is whether each of the universities you're considering offer a placement year. Placement years give you the opportunity to work in full-time, paid employment for a year during your degree (normally between your second and final year of uni). This looks great on your CV when it comes to applying for jobs after uni! Our placement programme helps our students graduate with a year of experience already under their belt, and we have over 2,300 partners in industry across the world, so you could even gain international experience. Often, placement students are offered a graduate job at the end of their placement if they’ve impressed their employer. This really takes the pressure off in your final year as you can focus on studying for your exams and doing your coursework instead of job hunting.

    Have you visited the universities you're trying to decide between? If not, I would suggest having a tour around campus and exploring the local area to make sure you’d be happy to live in whichever place you intend to study at. We run weekly campus tours on Wednesdays which leave Senate House at 1pm and last about an hour. If you can’t make a campus tour, you’re free to come do a self-guided tour. More info on both of those options here.

    In addition to that, if you’d like to speak to a member of the teaching team on the course then that can usually be arranged (depending on the academic’s availability). If you contact the Admissions team they’ll be able to put you in touch with an academic who will be happy to answer any questions you have about the course

    If you’ve got any questions about life at uni, the facilities, Students’ Union, and Guidlford in general then feel free to ask – I was an undergrad student at Surrey from 2012-2015

    All the best,

    Ashley

    That's last year's table

    Surrey is down to 27th for Business, Management and Marketing in this year's: https://www.theguardian.com/educatio...ment-marketing

    You probably want to reword your post to say "we WERE ranked second"...to avoid breaking CMA and advertising rules
