Southampton vs DurhamWatch
Durham - higher ranked university, but doesn’t give much information about the course (education) so would go into it without a clue of what I’m getting into. Smaller area and very pretty.
Southampton- education course has so much more detail on the website, I think I would like it more (although I don’t know much information at all about Durhams so can’t really compare). Feels like there would be more diversity within students, and I really liked the look of Hide Bede accommodation when I saw it. Other than that, I thought the area didn’t look pretty at all, which I really think I’d struggle with, because I’m not sure id want to live in somewhere like that for three years!! Looked like there was much more going on compared to Durham within student events.
I’d really really appreciate any help that could be given!
Hope this was of some help

PS if it's the wrong handbook you can find all of them on Durham website, just search Durham handbook on google
If the only reason that you have picked Durham is because of ranking (doesn’t matter for education courses) and one place to live then I would suggest that you switch to Southampton.
