I am applying to both liverpool hope university for a combined honours degree in special educational needs and education as well as the university of plymouth for primary education (special educational needs) with qualified teaching status and am not sure which one I want to make as my firm choice. I like them both but for different reasons, they are both a similar distance away from home and have the same ucas points for entry requirements.

Pro's for university of plymouth:

- Qualified teaching status
- Right next to the city - spend less money on transport
- Bigger student halls
- 100% of students in employment or further education within the first 6 months
- Right by the sea
- Close to the train station
- 100% coursework based
- 1 hour away from my sister
- Furthest accomodation is only 5 minutes away from campus
- work experiance placements
- Batchelor of education
- Silver teff


Cons:

- Accomodation slightly more expensive
- Campus doesn't look as nice
- Right by the city - could be loud at night
- The course doesn't have as much variety (other course teaches history, sociology, philosophy and psychology in addition to)
- coursework may get too overwhelming
- interview and additional tests are a requirement of application

Liverpool hope university pro's:

- Cheaper accomodation
- course has more content
- accomodation is right on campus
- campus looks nicer
- city is more exciting and there is more to do
- work experiance placements
- Batchelor or arts
- some coursework
- 100% students in Employment or further education within the first six months
- gold teff
- quieter location
- no additional requirements for application

Cons:

- 40 minutes away from city - more money on transport
- no family near by
- too much content? (Not as focused)
- smaller halls
- exams
- no qualified teaching status - would need to do a postgraduate

any advice would be appreciated, thanks 😀

Hi tvshowaddict2112

It is great to hear that you are interested in studying at Liverpool Hope University.

My first suggestion is to go on an open day, and if you already have, potentially go on an Applicant day. This will help you get a feel for what it would be like to study at the university and, if you have already been, help you solidify your beliefs about the university.

I would also say one of the biggest draws about our university is the city itself. Its is regarded as one of the best student cities because of the social activities available, how affordable it is to live in the city and the number of students in the city. The Times newspaper also wrote a piece a few months ago that the city is the best place overall for graduates because of the number of jobs opportunities combined with the affordability to live.

Hope this helps.

Dom
