Sheffield or Nottingham?Watch
Hi! I have offers from both Sheffield and Nottingham to study Architecture. But i’m not sure which i want to go to more. They both have the same grade requirements but i think Sheff is slightly higher ranked for the course whereas Notts is slightly higher ranked overall. Can anyone help me decide which uni to choose?
Sheffield is a very friendly city and feels very safe even at night etc. There are loads of parks within the city and the peaks are only a short drive away from the centre so perfect for walking/hiking/biking etc. Our Students' Union has been rated number 1 in the UK for 11 years running - great shops, cafes, restaurants, and Foundry (the SU nightclub) in the basement - the nightlife in the city is great too. I've only been to Nottingham once during the day so I'm not sure how the two compare. I loved Nottingham when I visited too!
I'd recommend asking as many questions as you can and try and visit the places before you chose if you can (depending on COVID I suppose) - this is how I decided on what Uni I wanted to go to. As cheesy as it sounds, Sheffield almost instantly felt like home to me.
Let me know if you have any further questions

Hi! I'm a student at Nottingham (although I'm studying pharmacy and not architecture). If you've got any questions, feel free to ask me - I'm not being paid by the uni so I'll give you my 100% honest opinion
