I am planning to study one semester in a university in the UK. I can choose and apply for 3 Universities from a selection. The Universities I can choose from are: Edinburgh, Manchester, York, Birmingham, Nottingham, Royal Holloway, Exeter and Aberdeen.

So the process is: I select my 3 favorites in preferred order and then the "jury" of the programme allocates me one of those 3 Universities, which they find fitting for me individually.

So what I want to find out is which 3 of these universities are most known around the world and most reputable to the population.

From doing some research, I found out that Edinburgh is always #1 and then the other two places go to either Manchester or York.

My study subject is English linguistics, language and literature.

Could you guys provide me with some kind of 1. 2. 3. place ranking which of these univsities I should preferable apply for to study one semester? Edinburgh seems to be #1 but I am still not sure which universities would rank #2 and #3 in terms of reputation and prestige.

Thanks in advance!

Those are all good unis and I think that if you're on exchange it doesn't really matter where you go anyway. Do you have any personal preferences in terms of location, campus/city uni, big/small town, course content, etc etc? Or what about weather and your budget -- Aberdeen is going to be freezing compared to Exeter and Royal Holloway will cost you twice as much as York

Thanks! ☺️
I prefer something like a busy modern city. The budget is no problem as I will get a grant and everything will be paid. Courses should be on Linguistics, literature and culture.
My first two places are Edinburgh and Manchester. Still not sure about the third though... Leaning towards York or Birmingham. 🤔

Hi guys - a recent graduate here from The University of Sheffield.

I've just jumped in this thread quickly to highlight one of our upcoming virtual English taster sessions the University is holding, which is titled 'Playing with Silence: Ten things the poets don't want you to hear'. These sessions are all free, and the link to these is here.

It sounds like you guys are pretty set on studying English, which is great! These sessions, however, can you give you a really interesting look at University-style teaching and they are a great thing to include in a personal statement or talk about in an interview, as they show you've done your wider research and you're really passionate about your subject.

I can also see some of you guys are applying to Sheffield (shoutout to JackDarley03), which is fab! Let me know if you have anymore questions about University-level teaching or University life at Sheffield in general! Good luck with your applications
- Ellie

Hey I do a combined degree for literature/linguistics in York, feel free to shoot me any questions! Linguistics is one of my favourite things so I'll try and answer as best as I can :hugs:
