Advice on studying business at university
Ignore Ranking and League Tables - they are total bunkum. They all come up with different results - which give you an indication that they are not a reliable way to judge any University. What you need to think about is - where will I feel most comfortable, where will I be happiest? Because this will mean you enjoy being at Uni - and that means you will enjoy your degree.
If you have had MH wobbles, then the option of being at home if Uni accommodation doesnt work out for you, is a good one.
That sense of security will be a big plus for how confident/comfortable you feel.
Sandwich years / placements add heaps to your CV and your employer appeal.
That's two good reasons for you choosing Coventry over DMU.
(Btw, BA/BSc makes no difference - for a finance degree its just an individual Uni thing, one is not see as better than the other).
Have a look at the Campus Tour films on YouTube and think about the reality of being at each place.
If you can, go and have a look at each Uni - you can just walk about the campus and no-one will ask you for id etc.
Which Uni feels right for you?
