I've been offered places at Lancaster and Nottingham but I'm not sure which to accept. I'm an international applicant and my priorities are employability after graduation and reputation. Please share your views to help me decide! Thanks

My daughter goes to lancaster, and we live in Nottingham. Although I wont be able to help you on the course I can on both cities and what they are like

looking at the complete uni guide https://www.thecompleteuniversitygui...aduate/finance Lancaster is more higher ranked.

Lancaster city is smaller than Nottingham. Its about half the size, however, it has all that you need for shopping clothes, sight seeing. And its near the coast of Morecambe and the lakes which are a bonus. Nottingham is much bigger and busier.
Nottingham uni to get to the city you would catch a tram from campus around every 10 minutes. With Lancaster its a bus which runs every 10 minutes.
Nottingham has more clubs if thats your thing, but Lancaster does hold its own with a couple of clubs and bars and restuarants.
Lancaster has a canal and the river lune. Nottingham has the river trent. out of these two, Lancaster would win.
Lancaster you can catch the train to edinburgh, and Manchester. Nottingham you can go to Manchester, and also London so Nottingham wins on this one.
Both campus are really nice. You cant go wrong with either of them

Thank you so much! This helps a lot 😊Do you happen to know more about MSc Finance programmes or employer reputation of these two unis?
