I have offers from both for Physio Bsc, but Im torn between them.

MMU seems like a much better Uni program and facilities wise etc, but Oxford seems like a much nicer location and placements to me. But I also read some bad things about OB but Im not 100% sure if theyre true or if its just a loud minority on here....

Its the same degree at the end of the day but I have to live there for 3 yrs and want to make the right choice, Im international student so I cant visit either unfortunately. Any advice?

It isnt going to make any difference career-wise - the NHS will not care where you got your degree and neither will your future patients.
So it come down to where you will feel the most comfortable - massive Uni in big city, smaller Uni in smaller city. Manchester will have lower living costs, Oxford will be more expensive but is a fun place to live.

Yeah I think I prefer the smaller city as Im from a small place myself, but I just read some weird things on this forum about OB having bullying issues and the Uni being badly run. I think thats what scares me a little since Im not from the UK and have no way of knowing its reputation beyond what I can read online

My daughter LOVED Brookes and felt really at home there.
The staff were great, especially when she had a bit of a confidence wobble in her 2nd year ad nearly dropped out.
She loved the shopping, the museums, the river, the cafes - everything. Highly recommended.

Oh thats awesome! Thank you for the vote of confidence. Like I said maybe its just a loud minority complaining... Im still not 100% but its nice to hear a positive view
