I currently have Bath as my firm choice and Lboro as my insurance, but it was so, so hard deciding between the two. I've gone for the 5 year course with a placement year for both unis, and my subject combos will include Chemistry and Biology/Biosciences.

Can anyone help list pros and cons of either uni (specifically NatSci stuff would be useful) at either one?

My gut is telling me Lboro, but I don't know if it's right...

All I know about them is that the two areas are very different. Loughborough is a town. Bath is more expensive. I know people who attended both universities and liked both. Have you visited both areas? There is the weekend to go before the results to do this maybe.

Do you mean you are holding F&I offers for them this year - or is this where you intend to apply for 2022?

Yeah — I’ve visited both unis for applicant visit days. I prefer the city of Bath, but I feel like the course at Lboro would suit me more (although I’m a bit apprehensive of their biosciences). This is silly, but Bath’s city style scares me ahah, although I guess I would get used to it.

I’m holding F&I offers, but I’m going to defer my place on results day.

Deferral requests aren't automatically granted - do just be aware of that when you're making your plans.

Agh yeah. I have asked both unis on applicant days, and they have seemed to say it's rare to have the deferral requests denied.
