    Hi guys, I’m looking to study events management next year likely at one of these three universities. I’ve been to look at all 3 but I’m struggling to choose.

    From looking at them on their open days I probably liked Plymouth the best and there’s a good chance I could get an unconditional offer there but I’ve heard so much about how the nightlife there is crap and even people who I’ve heard praise it have admited that it’s not as good as places like Liverpool

    Liverpool nightlife looks really good but I thought bournemouth and Plymouth generally looked a bit nicer as cities and and also the grade requirements are a bit higher than what I’m likely to get

    Bournemouth I probably liked the least on the open day but I feel like the open days might not be 100% reflective of what the unis are actually like, and I’ve heard the nightlife is good (better than Plymouth) and I generally preferred the setting to Liverpool, loved the beach etc

    Do people know anything about the unis and cities, anything about their nightlife etc? Any recommendations would be big help, thanks

    I live near Bournemouth, lovely beaches in the area, quite a bit to do there. Heard the nightlife is okay. Don't know much about the uni

    I have a mate that did events management at LJMU and hated it. He thought the staff were underqualified in real-life terms (he reckons a lot of them had never actually been to a festival, much less organised one) and he thought that the course itself was a bit thrown together.

    Obviously I dunno how accurate that is, but he never stopped complaining about it from the minute he started to the minute he finished. Even now he doesn't exactly look back on it with fondness. Maybe finding other people that have done the course at these places would give you a good grounding in how good the course itself will be?

    Exact problem I'm having right now :/ After apply for Bournemouth last year and taking a deferral, I've asked Plymouth to consider a course transferal because I need to be closer to home and their history course offers so many interesting opportunities (bit of a personal decision, though, as Plymouth's modules tie more closely with the century / centuries I'd like to specialise in).

    That said, Bournemouth preps you for a bunch of things. For instance, if I'd taken history with them (and I still might), I'd come out of the course with the tools to get into media and consultant work. Bournemouth has a lot of big name financial backers and their facilities - depending on what it is you're studying - are both brand new and top notch. This is according to their website though, so who knows!
