Lancaster vs Durham for PhysicsWatch
You’d be silly to chose Lancaster over Durham.
I'm an international student and looking for a University to study Physics in. Nightlife is unimportant whatsoever, between Durham and Lancaster, which university is a better option, purely academical.
Does it not contain some of the best universities in the country? Because last time I checked Cambridge, Oxford, Durham, Newcastle, Leeds, York etc are all fantastic unis.
I'm tempted to say Durham is stronger than Lancaster in this instance, but I don't know enough about physics as a subject. It isn't by a massive degree as is made out by other people on this thread.
The difference might not be as massive for Durham and Lancaster, but it’s not rocket science that Durham is a much better uni.
