I am an international student from India with offers from both Manchester and Nottingham to study politics and international relations, and can''t make up my mind. Any current politics students at Manchester? I am essentially looking for (1) good teaching and course content (2) good employability prospects and respect internationally in Asia (3) a diverse mix of international students and activities. Both unis seem to do well on all these. I know Nottingham has a far prettier and quieter campus, but I come from a big city and the business/noise of Manchester does not bother me. Any advice appreciated!
What are the downsides?
