Well first off, I think having a Firm and Insurance with the same grades goes a little against the whole point of having an Insurance ... but oh well.
The difference between Leeds and Loughborough:
- Loughborough is definitely a University and with a Town stuck on the side. In Leeds, if you have the day off there are probably a thousand and one different activities, shopping centres etc to amuse yourself. In Loughborough it definitely becomes a matter of finding things yourself: joining clubs/societies, doing sports.
However, saying that, with Leicester and Nottingham so close by train, it is not to say that you are stuck in the middle of nowhere - just that you will have to travel a bit further to get to all the shopping centres etc.
So thats probably the down side of Loughborough...
On the other hand
- Loughborough is definitely a University and with a Town stuck on the side. What you need is either on campus or in the town; bars, clubs, essential shops. You will definitely notice that quite a large percentage of people are students so you definitely won't feel like you are all alone, lost in a big city.
