Hey @a313795

You're asking a difficult question because of its subjectivity. How would you define 'best'? Size of campus, league tables for your subject, tutor to student ratio... There are loads of questions implied within your first question.

You could get loads of answers from people telling you what is 'best' for them, but would it be meaningful? - given that these will be answers from people you've never met and have their own individual standards and perceptions.

What I would suggest is making a list of what's important to you, and then researching universities to see which one fits you best. In my opinion, this is such a huge decision to make, it would be self-limiting to make it based off online research only. I would say it's essential you visit your shortlisted universities on open days to see what they're like. You don't want to have any rude surprises!

London Met is holding an open day for all subjects on Saturday 12 January. We invite you to pop over to check us out. We're in central London, just a hop skip and a jump away from King's Cross, so it will be easy for you to get to if you're coming from outside of London. On our open day you'll get a chance to check out the campus and any specialist facilities, meet the people who will be teaching you, and perhaps most importantly, you'll get to speak to current students - our students help out at our open days.

Hope this helps somewhat - if you have any questions, feel free to shout out and we'll get back to you!

Best of luck,

Dawn

Best is dependent on what's best for you.

The vast majority of university applications occur through an online application service, UCAS.
You can find a detailed guide to the UCAS process here:
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5650986

Or visit ucas.com for more information.

What year of study are you currently in? If you're looking to go to university starting next year (September 2019) then I'm afraid you're too late for Cambridge. If you're younger and asking for further in the future then you've every chance.:awesome:

Hope this helps and let me know if you have more questions,

MR

Hi a313795 :hello:

There are many different factors to consider when making the decision of which university to attend.

I would recommend that you start by comparing the course content. Remember that courses differ at different universities - No two courses are the same. Look beyond the course title at the content of the course. Topics will be different across universities, depending on academic expertise, course accreditation, international partnerships and location.

Other things to consider include:

What student accommodation is available?
What career prospectus does the university have?
Are there any work experience opportunities?
What support does the university offer? (Counselling, writing mentors, employability service etc.)
Are there any part time jobs on campus?
What extracurricular activities are available?
What is the cost of living in each of the cities?
What facilities does the university offer? (Library, gym, laundrette, catering etc.)
University stats

You want to make sure that you make the best decision for yourself and the one that will enable you to focus on your studies, socialise and most importantly... be happy!

I hope this helps.

Good luck with you decision

Amy
