Report Thread starter 1 week ago
I'm looking to study criminology or policing at university and hope to get into a career in the Police force or something to do with that. My family had been advising me to go to Russell uni but some websites I'm seeing are looking like that other non-Russell unis have better courses for what I want to do. After visiting some open days, I really like Birmingham Uni and the course it offers, but I haven't looked at or been to any non-Russell uni open days.
Just wondering if there's anyone studying these courses at a Russell uni as I would like to go to one preferably.
Or any advice on which uni is best or these courses is much appreciated!

The Russell Group is a group of institutions that's largely based around the research they do- although they have done a good job of marketing themselves to students! Whether a uni is in the Russell Group or not has very little bearing on your undergraduate degree.

You should look for universities with courses that interest you, and has a strong reputation for your subject- don't worry about whether they are Russell Group or not- and ignore your family. They aren't the ones who have to spend 3 years studying the course, you are.

It's definitely a good idea to go to a wide range of open days before you decide.
