Think of what you want overall from your whole uni experience. If it’s academic and job prospects related then you probably should consider using the league tables for your subject and pick the best uni.

If you care about other aspects more like the city you’re going to live in and what other social things you could do while you’re at uni like nightlife etc then probably do research about the individual cities and student life outside the course.

I don’t know much about any of the unis you mentioned so that’s the best advice I could give you.

Hi Elena GG

According to Wikpedia "Three national rankings of universities in the United Kingdom are published annually – by The Complete University Guide, The Guardian and jointly by The Times and The Sunday Times". I would also look at the course rankings as well. Always look at the criteria used, as different rankings use different criteria.

As Doh7aa said it is worth considering other factors too, you will be spending at least three years of your life in one of these places so it is important to not end up in a place you hate (even if you like the course).

Good luck

Hi Elena GG,

I am currently a final year student at Bournemouth University and can tell you a bit about the local area and the facilities here.

Bournemouth is a lively seaside town with many restaurants, bars and clubs as well as shopping and a new cinema complex. We have a student bar on campus called Dylan's which is great for food, and drink and they host live music and quiz nights and then there is the student night club near the accommodation called The Old Fire Station, which hosts lots of theme nights you can get involved in. The accommodation is minutes walk to the most things such as the train station, supermarket and the beach.

The campus has a modern feel and if you are looking to study film you will get to use the brand new building that opened last year called The Poole Gateway Building which has some amazing facilities such as industry standard digital film cameras, editing programmes and audio equipment. There are some great career prospects as 85% of BU students who study Film are working 15 months after they graduate. There is also an option to do a placement which can provide you with industry experience and contacts for when you graduate.

I really hope this helps but if you have any other questions you would like to ask about BU then please do not hesitate to contact me

嗨 Elena GG,

我目前是伯恩茅斯大学的最后一年级学生,可以告诉您一些有关当地和这里设施的信息。

伯恩茅斯是一个热闹的海滨小镇,拥有许多餐厅、酒吧和俱乐部以及购物场所和一个新的电影院。我们在校园里有一个名为 Dylan's 的学生酒吧,非常适合吃喝玩乐,他们举办现场音乐和测验之夜,然后在住宿附近有一个名为 The Old Fire Station 的学生夜总会,它举办许多主题之夜,你可以涉足。住宿步行几分钟即可到达火车站、超市和海滩等大多数地方。

校园具有现代感,如果您想学习电影,您将可以使用去年开放的全新大楼 The Poole Gateway Building,里面有一些令人惊叹的设施,如行业标准的数码电影摄影机、编辑程序和音频设备. 有一些很好的职业前景,因为 85% 学习电影的 BU 学生在毕业后 15 个月都在工作。您还可以选择实习,为您提供毕业时的行业经验和联系方式。

我真的希望这会有所帮助,但如果您有任何其他关于 BU 的问题,请随时与我联系
Hi, I want to know if the avid course have the limitation on the number of people, or everyone in there were learn it.

Knowledge is power, so take this time to do as much research as you can on all your options, speak to current students where possible and also look into what they can both offer you. How do they rank, what are their graduate employment stats, what support are you offered as a student, what financial support do they both offer? Other important factors to take into account are where you'd prefer to live, you'll be there for the next three years so it's important that you like where you are. What does the location offer to students and is it within your budget? Take this time to attend online open days, and search online forums such as this for as much insight as possible. Then when it comes to making your decision, you're doing so with all the right information.

Best of luck
