    Hi,

    I'm a French student and I'm currently applying to law schools for 2018 entry. I've chosen LSE, Newcastle, Warwick and QMUL so far.
    However, I need a backup choice and I'm struggling to choose between Birmingham, Exeter and Manchester.

    Anyone having studied in one of these universities wishing to tell me about their experience there ?

    Thank you !

    Yeah, but slight drawback ... it's in Birmingham.

    For law, its easily Manchester or Exeter. In fact both have better rep than Newcastle for law.

    Having checked the entry requirements for international students, I'm more focusing on Exeter as my backup choice. Even though Birmingham has low entry requirements for French students (especially for those taking Cambridge's OIB).

    Manchester seems to be a top uni for law, and has the same entry requirements as Warwick.

    Birmingham (anthem) by Lotto Boyz is a tune. I recommend you listen to it before making any decisions

    All three Universities are 'good' Universities, and all their degrees are qualifying Law degrees.

    So - look at the 'extras' on offer at each Uni. Study Abroad, extra language units, units in other subjects, or a joint subject degree.
    There will be Open day films about each Uni on You Tube so you can see what each Uni and city looks like.

    Look at the grades, so you have a lower "Insurance' offer as well as your 'Firm'

    I'd go for Exeter as a backup. Near-guaranteed offer + probably the best relationship with City firms from the three you're choosing from + high alumni presence in the City (which makes it good for networking).
