I will be doing Maritime business, and I have offers from both Southampton Solent University and University of Plymouth. Which one should I go for?

Have you visited either? Which modules appeal to you the most?

I'm an international student, I can't visit. I'm just concerned about the living experience

Hi, I'm currently living in Southampton, and two of my best friends go to Plymouth University, so I am in both cities quite a lot. Here are some general things:

Overall, as a University, Plymouth is higher in the rankings. However, I believe Solent may be higher for Maritime Business (please check this - I'm not 100% certain). Southampton is closer to London, and Plymouth is closer to tourist seasides (like big beaches)! Both have great shopping malls: Plymouth has Drake Circus, and Southampton has West Quay (which is more high-end). In my opinion, Plymouth University offers nicer accommodation, however both have lots of private accommodation providers around (if that's something you'd be interested in, rather than halls). Both Universities are located relatively near the center of their cities.

Is there anything else you'd like to know?
