so a bit of background
i’ve applied to do primary school teaching and i’ve applied to :
-winchester
-chichester
-derby
-brighton
-reading
my a levels were AAB and B in core maths so i have 152 ucas points.

I’m not a huge drinker so not overly worried about nightlife but i still do like to go out and drink just not alllll the time, winchester is apparently really really dead which i wouldn’t want but also is supposed to be really good for my course.

Please any help would be appreciated i am really torn over which one to pick. thanks in advance !!!

Winchester is such a beautiful place to live! So what if the nightlife is crap, there will be pubs and socials in halls. everywhere has pros and cons. i guess Brighton would be good for you, as it has a much better nightlife and is by the sea

Hi Anonymous
Excited to see Derby on the list.
Choosing a university is very much about what feels right for you.
In terms of a life in Derby beyond your studies, there's so much you can do in the city AND it's also got fantastic countryside right on the doorstep. You can explore all the different things you could get up to on our City and Countryside pages. And Derby has Purple Flag status. This means our city centre is fun and safe.
We also had a chat over the last few weeks with some recent graduates and current students about what it's been like for them at Derby.
If you want to take a look around, our Derby campus tours are starting up again soon.
Best of luck in whatever you decide.
Kind regards.

Hi there,

We understand that choosing a university can be really tricky, always go with what feels right for you.

Teaching training is one of our specialities here at Chichester, we've been training teachers for over 180 years! So you'll be in good hands if you choose to come here. Our Teaching courses are based on our campus in Bognor Regis which is just 915 steps away from the beach, perfect right? We have a selection of bars, restaurants and a nightclub in Bognor so there is lots to do in terms of going out. It's worth mentioning that we also have a free intercampus bus to our Chichester campus so you can visit Chichester city at any time during the day, giving you the flexibility of spending time in two beautiful places! Transport links from both Chichester and Bognor Regis are excellent, especially by train. You can be in Portsmouth in 20 minutes, Brighton in 1 hour and London in 1 hour 30 minutes!

It can be really helpful to talk to current students before choosing a university as it can give you a feel for the university from a student's point of view. You can chat to our current students via Unibuddy. Olivia is a third year student on one of our Primary Teaching courses, so feel free to ask her about the course and her student experience - https://api.unibuddy.co/og/universit...Position=share

If you have any other questions or would like to be put in contact with a lecturer, let us know. We're happy to help!

Good luck in choosing

Thanks, Sian

Look with AAB you can go off and do pretty much any course at any uni so why not shelve the primary school teacher route and go do a degree in something you like - History, Biology - and then do a post grad certificate in education in primary school teaching to then go into teaching. If you can cover all you need to know about teaching in a 1-year PGCE then why spend 3 years studying it? The world is your oyster.

Hey, interesting point, i’ve actually done a year of work in two multinational companies and decided that both those avenues weren’t right for me, i don’t have a particular subject i would want to specialise in and so i wouldn’t want to do a subject specific course which is why i decided on primary teaching

Winchester and Chichester are the best on that list - go for a good course. There is night life everywhere ... Winchester is near Southampton for example.

Look at the Campus Tour films for each Uni on YouTube - then look at the Tourist films for each place.

Then - a few questions. 1) Do I want to be in a big city or a small town. 3) What sort of Uni experience do I want.
Only you can answer this.
