City london uni or royal HollowayWatch
Hi I’m writing because I’m currently stuck between choose go royal Holloway or city. My initial choice was royal Holloway purely because of the course and the campus however I will need to travel from NW london to RH on a regular to get to class which is nearly 2 hours long. however city london does a year abroad alongside the psychology course I will take plus this university is only 40 minutes away from home. I don’t know much about city london so I don’t if I should go purely for the year abroad
ranked way higher for the subject at no 25 to City Unis ranking of 70 for the same subject.
Its a marketing exercise run by newspapers, designed to sell newspapers, and is actually a fairly silly way to pick a University.
The question is how much value will a yr abroad add to a degree in Psychology? v a university that that has a better and stronger reputation for Psychology i.e research, investment in facilities and employment outcomes for the subject etc etc as well as having a nice campus. This is not the same as ‘overall’ university rankings. You’ll be infact very stupid to disregard subject rankings in deciding where to go. Whether OP will ‘enjoy’ either university is anyone’s guess.
hey, I got to RHUL in second year and I study Psychology and Criminology. As far as I am aware, you are able to apply for a year abroad study for any course, providing you do well in your first year. Let me know if you have any other questions about the uni.
