Your thinking is so unsophisticated that I fear that you won't have much in the way of success with either kind of firm.

Can't you compile a list of pros and cons yourself? You've probably seen enough similar threads on TSR.

What do you mean by "employability"? Neither university is more prestigious and neither stands out in the career opportunities it offers (there's only so much a careers service can do to begin with...)

Why do you feel the need to give such a snarky response? The person asked completely normal questions.

why did you reply with all of this ********... simply if you do not want to answer don't. but don't be rude for no reason. I am an international student so i want to take several point of views into consideration and also ask students because I don't want my choice to be fully dependent on google..

I don't know much about law, but my sister was in a similar situation to you last year - deciding whether to firm Nottingham or Bristol.

I can't say much about which is 'better,' but my sister ended up picking Nottingham and is loving it so far. The campus is beautiful & the teaching, though online, has been great. I'm not sure if Bristol offers something similar (though I'm sure a quick Google search would do), but Nottingham's Law LLB has the option of applying to a 'year abroad,' given you're doing well & have the grades. It's quite competitive to apply for, but definitely worth it as my sister is an international student as well, so the fact that the university connects you with other prestigious universities (closer to home for us) including Singapore's National University & a handful of universities in Australia is great, as it helps if you want to work there. Also, where I'm from, Nottingham is more 'known' than Bristol as they have campuses in Malaysia and China as well. Just something to keep in mind if you're hoping to work abroad.

Lazy questions that expect others to do the work for them. There's a search function.

Does being an international student make you incapable of using the aforementioned search function?

Hey sorry just checking- did you get these offers for Law last year & defer? Just wondering because otherwise would be very early in this application cycle (I think, sorry whole system is new to me...) and haven't heard of anyone else getting offers from Bristol/Nottingham Law yet. Well done on both anyway though, both amazing unis!

thank you, that was really helpful.. if i may ask what is ur sister studying and according to her does she like the living and is notts a vibrant enough city for her not get bored or something... tbh i liked both a lot but nottinghams campuses are amazing. However, i dont want this to affect my choice of uni...
ah cool... and the hardest part is that most of their modules are the same so its the little things that matter and for me, the most important thing is employability in UK firms like big city law firms or MC or even Us firms...(ofc i have to work on my CV too) anways thank you and gd luck for ur sister

thank you... so ive got an early offer because i am going to do a foundation year at first and then continue to law school so they usually start accepting by now because u have to start choosing ur firm choices by January (considered the early admission for international students) for the visa and payments etcc...

Hard to say. They both in the top 20 cities in the UK for size and have big student populations, pre-covid there were lots of jobs in both if you went to look but I'm not so sure now. Perhaps you might say Bristol is the nicer place to live - its popularity (not just amongst students) has gone up a lot in the past 15 years. Nottingham Uni has a lovely campus but Bristol is not a campus based university.
