I can’t advise on the unis themselves as I haven’t applied to them, although I did virtual open days for Glasgow and Manchester and was quite impressed by them. I visited Glasgow to have a look around the city when I was considering applying and the uni buildings are quite historic, if that’s something that you’re looking for. The city seems quite divided from what I’ve heard from locals as the students and the city centre are on opposite sides of the city, but I don’t think that this is necessarily a bad thing. I frequently visit Manchester to see family and the people and city are great! Not much to say on the uni as I have never visited it.

Hey, although I was looking at studying just eco, Birmingham uni had a nice vibe to it when I visited last year and was my top pick, the accommodation was superb. I also visited Loughborough and it seemed very good for the academic side especially their placement years. Diversity was a big thing for me and Loughborough kind of lacked outside of the economics introduction presentation which I found strange lol. The accommodation was disgusting (okay bit dramatic lol) but I have a friend there that enjoys it and instead lives off campus I have friends at Manchester and they really enjoy it, not sure about the course but the city is nice. Not too sure about Glasgow. I think it defo depends on what you want from your uni experience.

Hi Kornershopbandid,

It's a difficult choice and I don't envy your situation. Why not check out what our students (past and present) have to say about their experiences in studying politics and economics?

Were you able to attend any of our Virtual Open Days last year? The pages are still live so you can check them out here. You can view course presentations and videos and also information on accommodation, student services, Student's Union and more.

Employability prospects are also important so consider doing a placement year. We hold one of the largest careers fairs in the UK and have excellent links with employers.

Most importantly, choose the university that you feel you would be happiest at and the one where the modules interest you the most.

Good luck
Bindu

1) No-one else can decide for you. Their interests, comforts and needs will not be the same as yours.

2) You do not have to make this decision until JUNE. There is no advantage in making an early decision and there are already posts here on TSR from people who did do it too early and now can't get out of a wrong decision.

3) Read the advice here : https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/uni...urance-choices
