by not going to russell groupWatch
My situation is that I've got an offer from Uni of Liverpool and Manchester met, I know Liverpool is a better uni but I think I will have a much better time at Manchester given its diversity and vibrant city.
If I could receive some help it would be much appreciated. Thank you Harris
Having said that... I achieved a 2:1 from University of Chester. My brother, on the other hand, achieved a 1st from University of Warwick. My brother definitely did not have any advantage over me when it came to job hunting - he struggled just as much as I did to find employment.
Go to whichever one you prefer. If you prefer MMU as a university and Manchester as a city over Liverpool, go to MMU.
Go by the department and what it has to offer and the modules they have. If you feel you can get more value out of a non RG over a RG, then go for the non RG.
I’m going to be studying Accounting and Finance, I originally wanted to go to Uni of Manchester but it was my GCSE maths grade that prevented me from receiving an offer. After these replies I feel better since everyone in my college were obsessed with russell groups.. Would it be better if I went to a non Russell then tried to get a post grad at a Russell group?
I don't think it matters, especially for accountancy. There are plenty of good universities which aren't in the Russell Group such as St Andrews, Lancaster, Loughborough and Bath.
RG unis get nearly 70% of the research grants so have the best labs and equipment - not so relevant for you since you are studying accountancy. However, as RG unis have more cash, their libraries and IT infrastructure tend to be better.
