    I am an international student and deciding which one to be my firm and insurance choice.

    Manchester has overall high university ranking with small class teaching (50 students among their 5 programmes in planning and environment management) but seems not so many people choose it to study urban planning.

    I have read many good comments about Sheffield. Many students in my place choose Sheffield as their first choice.

    The one year placement at Newcastle attracts me. I notices that in a particular recent year, their percentage of 1st hon is 33% and 2nd up is 52% while 1st hon of Manchester and Sheffield are only 5.26% and 10%.

    Any comments are welcome.

    Kitty presuming you will use it abroad? is there any difference between these degrees> i'd be surprised if your average employer thought so.
    They are all RITP and RICS acredited.

    Take with a pinch of salt but all close to each other.

    Maybe you can ask to talk to a student from each and even better if they are international? Contact the departments or international department.

    If your figures are correct about degree classification then that is a strong pull imo.

    I can say that these days theres a very strong East Asian contingent at Sheffield.
