Plymouth vs ARU?Watch
went to Plymouth the other day and felt like it was very quiet compared to my hometown and in years 3-5 you will be placed in Torbay/Plymouth/Torquay. Most of the students at Plymouth decide to stay in the city centre as that’s where the vibrance is but then the downside is a 15-20min bus journey for some lectures/clinical skills in yr 3-5
Plymouth is 4hr by train on average (sometimes 3hrs 40min) from where I live whereas ARU is 3hrs by train (sometimes 2hrs 40min) and ARU is 1hr from central London which can be good for an outing I guess.
Because medicine is regulated across all universities, the only differing factors are the city and course structure? The only downside to ARU is that it is a new uni and has had bad rep. (Eg in the news) but I guess medicine isn’t bad there because it’s regulated by GMC?
