Hello, I've received an offer to study pharmacy at UoB and Aston Uni but I don't know which one is better! I've been offered ABB if I firm UoB and BBB if I firm Aston. Obviously UoB is a Russell Group university which scores more "brownie points" but as the course is quite new there, I'm not sure if its an ideal place to study compared to Aston which has been doing pharmacy for over 170 years if i remember correctly I guess it'd be considered the safer option?

Sorry for the waffle but I'm really stuck! I've been to an Applicants Day for both unis and still can't make up my mind. Help!

it being RG wont matter when you're a pharmacist but if they've been doing a course for longer it could mean better teaching, have you visited both?

Aston is a more established pharmacy school which a higher intake of students (so more help ;p) in comparison to UoB, however UoB generally has a better reputation as a university as a whole.
