I’ve been accepted to both Roehampton and Adelaide (in australia), given the track records of both which university would you choose?
I’d be studying Philosophy, Religion and Ethics at Roehampton, or International Relations at Adelaide. International Relations is the course I actually want to do, but they don’t offer it Roehampton.
I really don’t want to move abroad for uni, as it seems like too much hassle and I don’t want to be leaving my friends either.
Which uni would you pick given that you’d prefer to stay local? Is it worth leaving everything for uni? Does it actually matter which university you receive your degree from?
Also I have Aus passport so the fees would be about the same.
Thank you

So why apply to Australia in the first place? There are other universities offering IR in the UK...

Do you qualify for a student loan in Australia? You won't get one from SFE to study abroad.

Do you want to work in the UK or Australia after graduating?

Do you want to live in Australia or the UK while studying?
Hi, Id definately want to live in the UK after graduation, I don’t really want to move even for studying, I was wondering if others think it’s worth it for a better education? Thanks

I applied so i could have a back up in case i didn’t get accepted to any other UK universities (which i didn’t)
And yes I’m eligible for student loan
Thanks
It seems a very long way to go just to study that course...

There are likely to be IR courses in Clearing so you will have that option when you get your A-level (or equivalent) grades.

Heya,

I don't know anything about Roehampton or Adelaide uni specifically unfortunately. I did come through the Aussie university system though sophiia_.x - is there anything I can answer about Australia more generally?

It looks like you're pretty keen to study and live in the UK, so I'm wondering if there's anything in particular you're hoping going to uni in Aus will offer you that you wouldn't get here? No doubt there's great unis in both countries, it just depends what you're looking for.
