I have narrowed it down to four universities,(i knw its too much but you gotta help me, please) primarily the unis closer to me as i will be living at enfield, namely Surrey, Oxford Brookes, Brunel and Coventry. Which one should i go for?

Of course it's a question, and one we can't answer because OP hasn't told us anything about them.

@OP: have you visited them all?

Brunel is really good for engineering. Also, how are you going to travel all the way to Surrey or Oxford if your living in Enfield?

Hey Chamith97, well I'm currently a final year student at Oxford Brookes, my time here has been amazing and I have heard that the Mechanical Engineering(MEng) course that Oxford Brookes offers is really good from what my friends have said that is currently taking the course. Plus if you are thinking of staying at home in Enfield, London/ Oxford has great transportation links such as the Oxford Tube and X90 (You get discounted travel only £10 return when you show your Student Card).

See the link below

Hope this helps you

Are you a daily commuter from london to oxford as well? Is it doable daily? Coz i suppose i will have to attend lectures the whole week at least in the first year or so.

They're not that far apart so you could comfortably visit them all in a couple of days. Certainly worth considering if you're going to spend 4 years of your life there.

If not, you need to tell us what you're looking for. Do you want a campus uni? Quiet or busy town/city? Are sport facilities important? Night life? What are your preferences with course content / assessment? Do you have a certain industry you're leaning towards? Etc.

Well, regarding sports fascilities, if the uni has a gym thats all i want, id love to engadge in rowing but academics comes first.
Id like something quite, some space to roam about when bored or something. Not that its mandatory but nice to have.
Well im looking to join the automotive sector which is the reason im more attracted towards oxford brookes and surrey, their courses are much interesting too.
The only reason im even considering coventry is becauss coventry is UKs motown. Or else daily travel of 200miles would kill me.
Soo....

I don't do the commute daily myself, but most of my lecturers live in London and commute in so it is doable! The coach is comfortable so you could get some coursework / reading done to make the most of the commute. Also, depending on your timetable they may not be spread across all 5 days - unfortunately you don't finalise your timetable until you have come to Oxford Brookes!!
Hope that is helpful, Issy

Hi Chamith97

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 :thumbsup:

I am slightly biased but I would say Brunel. Its engineering and design is what we are well known for and the placement options are second to none
