durham or bath??Watch
some pros and cons?
Student life, in partnership with UEA
I have never visited either university. For snob value, Durham is best. It is a Russell Group University. However, I happen to think that Bath is in a much nicer area. I have visited Bath a lot and I love the whole region. I went to a talk by the Head of Admissions of Bath, and it seems that the University of Bath is very focussed on the quality of teaching, whereas I think Durham may be more interested on the quality and amount of research it does, which does not always trickle-down to satisfactory teaching. So I personally think that Bath would provide most people with a more satisfying and enjoyable undergraduate experience, with good teaching too. That’s only my opinion. I advise going to open days if you can and I wish you all the very best for the future.
