    I’ve been given the same offer by both uni’s - Unconditional if I firm. Lincoln is higher ranked for my course (Biomedical science) but the student satisfaction isn’t as high as NTU. Has anyone got any opinions of both universities I can take into consideration including things about accomodation etc...

    Thank you

    Hey Randomer2086

    Massive congrats on both of your offers! :five:

    University is of course more than just about the course, so great to hear that you are looking at other aspects such as accommodation. Our Biomedical course is taught at our Clifton campus, just a few miles out of the city centre. The campus has recently been developed including the impressive Pavillion which is home to a massive open space to socialise as well as teaching rooms.

    In terms of accommodation at Clifton, there is a wide range on offer to suit all budgets and preferences.

    To give you a flavour here are some of the halls available to you:

    New hall - Is right in the heart of the Clifton Campus and is one of the newer halls of residence. All rooms are en-suite in flats ranging from 1-10 people.

    Peverell - Again, in the heart of the campus, just a 2 minute walk to the Student Union which houses a bar, restaurant and cafe. Peverell is one of our largest halls of residences so there's guaranteed to be something always going on!

    Although studying at Clifton, these halls are not the only option. You also have the option to stay in one of our city campus halls and commute to Clifton for lectures and seminars.

    Here's the link to our City Campus residences.

    There's a handy bus service that runs every 10-15 minutes from the city campus which costs from £2 for a single journey, but you can have the option to have a travel pass loaded onto your NTU ID for a cheaper annual fee

    From personal experience of choosing which university to go to, the city was a really important factor for me. I come from a relatively small town so I wanted to move somewhere which was bigger than what I was used to but not overwhelming. Nottingham fits that criteria for me, there's plenty to do, loads of places to eat and go out but it's also not too overwhelming in size.

    In terms of the university itself, what really stood out for me is that they are always investing in the facilities. This may not seem that important but to be able to study in a nice modern surrounding really does make it easier to enjoy your university experience.

    My opinion was really helped by attending an open day, have you been to see Lincoln or NTU yet? This may be a good way to really get a feel for the place and help to envisage if it is the university for you.

    I hope this has helped, give me a shout if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer

    Of course go to Lincoln. Student satisfaction at Trent is only high because of indolence of their students and undemanding requirements of their similarly idle lecturers. If your aim is to get some applicable knowledge, don't go to trent.
