I’m applying for sociology with criminology I’ve applied to :
Loughborough
University of Nottingham
University of Birmingham
Nottingham Trent

I’m still trying to make up my mind, I know Loughborough is good for criminology, but also considering the Russell groups as they have a good academic reputation.
So I’m not sure ?

I’ve applied for Manchester Met, Leeds Beckett, Liverpool John Moores, Uni of Hull and Nottingham Trent. Manchester’s definitely my first choice and I can’t see that changing. Just waiting on an offer back from Leeds and then that’s offers from them all.

Hi lauren15x15

My advice is don't choose a university purely based on whether it is Russel Group or not. RG really only seems to have importance here on TSR and in some 6th forms - especially for courses such as criminology.

Employers want to see well rounded candidates with a good degree result. So out of the ones you've applied for, you need to look at what each one can offer you the most and do they match up with your career aspirations and interests. You also need to look at location, living costs, whether you want a city or campus uni, employability stats, extra curricular activities etc etc. That's how you should decide on which uni you want to go to - not if it's RG or not.

Hope that helps
Vicky

Hey,

I've decided now and gone with Loughborough. I firmed it a few weeks ago and couldn't be happier. There are so many group chats being able to talk to people, and honesty the RG wasn't what was a massive factor but the content of the course and just the uni in general.

hope you make the right decision for yourself and what you feel is best for you. At the end of the day you will have a great uni experiences either way.
