Have offers from both Unis for Medicine but not so sure which one to choose for firm/insurance? The req grades are the same for both offers.

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?

Anyone???
Hey I’m not sure if you’ll see this but I’m in the exact same situation for 2021 entry. I’m stuck deciding between the 2 and as this post was awhile ago I assume you’ve started one of the 2 courses. If so, why did you choose one course over the other one and what do you think of it? Thanks.
