Hi Everyone,
So for the past few months, I've had trouble picking Brunel or Royal Holloway for LLB Law. I've been to the applicant days and have done much research but are there any students out there (law) that can give me some more pros and cons of the two which the universities might not make clear of? BTW my heart rests more towards RH but I still want to be 100% sure its right.
Thanks!

I'm currently a first year law student at Royal Holloway so I'd be happy to answer any questions you have? I don't know much about the course at Brunel (as I never looked into it) so I can't help you there I'm afraid.

Thank you! How are you finding the course so far? Are the.teachers helpful and can you approach them outside of lectures? And what made you decide on RH since its only been doing law for a few years?

I'm really enjoying the course so far! Obviously most law degrees have a certain degree of similarity (especially with what subjects they teach) but I like the structure of my subjects and especially find seminars useful. The staff are very approachable outside of lectures/seminars and usually reply to emails fairly quickly too. The course is new (although I'm the 4th year and you'd be the 5th, so it's not *very* new) but they already have some great links: we have a law-specific careers fair and they're recently launched a scheme for some first year students to have work experience placement with a magic circle firm. There are definitely other examples that I've forgotten!

The atmosphere at RH is what I love most, the campus is small and friendly and also very green and pretty (which is very important to me). Egham is defo a bit quiet but we have pretty decent SU nights out on campus (although I'm not a big party-er so I'm not the best person to judge on that!!!) and its lovely being so close to both Windsor/Virginia Water and London. I'd really recommend the course and the uni, but obviously I can't compare it to Brunel having never studied or even visited there.

Ultimately, I'd decide on wherever you feel most comfortable and can see yourself most!

Thanks! This is helpful, one more question, what gradea did you get in with? Would they be okay if we were one grade off?

I had an unconditional offer, so they didn't care about my grades. But the uni is pretty good at taking people who have missed their grades, they usually have spaces in clearing too. Obviously I can't guarantee anything but I expect you'd be fine! x
