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?

i think as a general point,have a look at the course structure again and see if there's anything particular you like.Also things you may want to consider would be the city,the area you'd stay,distance from family,job prospects in the future.Maube speak to anyone who studies there to get a better idea of how the uni is like.

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

Hi there! I'm currently in my third year at Sheffield (although music, not architecture) but I can give you an overview of my opinions of the uni and the city as a whole.

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
