I'd probs go with Newcastle but that's a personal choice. More recognised uni with employers too. Also currently in the top ten for graduate prospects.

Thanks for the info, I didn't know that. I like the modules at the Newcastle better, but Nottingham Trent University has a list of institutions and organisations they have links with on their website for students to see. It helps to know where I can be employed with the specific degree. I didn't find anything like that on the Newcastle's Uni website but maybe I'm just bad at searching...

Newcastle in general is more well regarded, however in such a specialised field im not sure.

Perhaps look at people whos jobs you want to pursue and see which degrees they have.

Nottingham university would generally refer to The University of Nottingham, not Nottingham Trent.

I know... But what if it just sounds better but isn't better in reality? How do I know which one is better and gives me more I can actually use at work...

To be fair it's very obvious which one is better. Newcastle is by far better than Nottingham Trent. If it was Nottingham then yes it would be something worth looking at. But you are literally comparing a Russell group university against a polytechnic, so of course Newcastle will offer a better teaching and better employability.

You need to have a thorough look at the course description and modules. Only you can decide. If you are bothered by which is the more prestigious uni then it's Newcastle.

Thank you for the response! I already sent an email 5 days ago with no response so far, but I guess there is a lot of people like me with a lot of questions.
Unfortunately I didn't find anyone on Unibuddy studying the programme I have questions about.
Thank you for all the info!

Hi Barve,

You're very welcome. Sorry to hear that, yes our teams will be very busy at the moment, especially with Clearing around the corner! If you like, you can also email our PG admissions team where you may receive a quicker response: [email protected]. If you also ask them about where you can reach fellow students, they may be able to help

Best of luck with the applications!
