Yeah it is, no one knows what urban planning is . I'm going to apply to loughbrough and sheffield too! What is your top choice and what are your thoughts on Liverpool and Newcastle, I'm stuck between choosing one of them two.

I prefer Liverpool by far, Newcastle is an afterthought to fill my 5th option. Newcastle is much further from where I live and I think Liverpool is a nicer city. Although, both courses are really good.

By yay for lough and sheffield!

Yeah, I think LIverpool has a nice regenerated city. I've never been Newcastle but I heard that it's a great student city.

Hey guys! applying for urban planning (and 2 geography courses). I applied to loughborough, queens Belfast and UCL for urban planning! I have received offers from both QUB and Loughborough. Its actually such a niche subject. I love architecture, the idea of utopias, how the past predicted what life would be like today, swimming, watching documentaries and listening to podcasts on really obscure topics! I do IB so its a bit different to A levels. Good luck to everyone!
