Hi, as the title states I'm looking for advice for York or Loughborough to do maths. I'm looking for a course which have quite a few options to do mechanics/physics of maths. Here are my points for each:

Loughborough (AAA)
. Close to home (20 minutes)
. Great course support
. Impeccable accommodation
. Good for sport
. Top student experience and good SU

York (ABB)
. Russel group
. Really far away (two and a half hours)
. Lower entry requirements
. Not as good for sport
. Accommodation is good but not like Loughborough

However, the course looks more suited to me at York than Loughborough. I've had my heart set on Loughborough for ages now and I prefer everything about it by far, except the most important part of university, the course. It looks like York have a bigger focus on mechanics than Loughborough who seem more into statistics and finance. Do I just suck it up and enjoy stats or go with what I think I might enjoy. Does anyone have any opinion on what they would do?

Thanks

I’ve always been told to go with what I enjoy and want to do otherwise it’s just painful and not worth it. I’d think hard about it as you’ll be doing it for three years.

Hi Foyston,

We are really happy to hear that you have Loughborough up in your top 2 choices currently for universities.

Our Mathematics BSc does offer optional modules that will allow you to tailor it to your preferences. However, one thing you can't compromise on with universities is your course as it is what you are there for. Have you contacted our maths department to discuss your dilemma? They may be able to offer you some more specialist advice. Additionally, a visit day or open day may help you in asking questions and finding out more about the options available to you.

Best Wishes,
Emily

Thanks for the response, sorry for not getting back soon. I have contacted the maths department a few days ago with regards to the course content so I'll wait to see what they suggest. Hopefully they can clear up a few questions I've had and that will help me decide. Thanks for the help.
