It's going to be a huge thread with lots of comments if you get people replying, as this is just an open question regarding several med schools.

What has your research told you so far?

I can answer 2 of your med schools above in detail and 2 in less detail. I don't know anything about Cardiff.

I don't have time to type out every hospital and my reviews on their accommodation for the ones I know. Any more specific questions?

Just your general comments for the ones you know would be appreciated. Positive or negative

I have not heard anything (seriously) negative about Manchester, Liverpool, Nottingham or Leicester personally. Obviously all universities have their supporters and people who don't like them.

The only significant difference that I can spot from this list is that Nottingham will give you a "free" BMedSci (in terms of time and money) along with your MBBS, so that could sway your decision because that's an extra couple of application points when you apply to specialty. Note that it's not worth as much as a full intercalated degree - but then that comes at a cost of a year's time and extra year's tuition fee.

Otherwise all med degrees are the same, and really you should pick according to teaching styles (PBL vs integrated), location, student satisfaction, your own stats (GCSE, UCAT etc.). Liverpool is very UCAT heavy this year.

Also, read through https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...d.php?t=812998 - may not be too updated but will be a good start.
