Hi guys

Ive been thinking about moving universitys after my foundation year, im currently at the uni of lincoln doing a intergrated foundation year physics. The two unis i have in mind are the University of east anglia and the university of sussex to move to and wantes to ask which one is better for physics and whether or not id be better staying at the university of lincoln as there isnt anything wrong with the uni itself theres just a lack of option modules on the course and id like to specialise a bit more.

Also if anyone has any other recommendations for other unis feel free to make suggestions.

Anyone applying here, I would strongly recommend UEA, it has awesome facilities such a LCR which is a night club on campus (how amazing!), also the sports park where you can literally play any sport you like. Not to mention how great the accommodation is (award winning)

Norwich is a fantastic city (coming from someone who lived their whole life there), has awesome nightlife and bars, plenty of cafes and one of the best in uk for shopping!

Hope this helps, highly recommend UEA
