Probably for the upper echelon tier management consultancy firms & IB/high finance, Durham has the edge. For everything else the difference will be pretty minimal, more down to individual applicant. Both are excellent universities, reputation wise.

Alright but are there good jobs in Durham? Leeds is a pretty big city compared to Durham. Which location would be easier for job hunting and landing a good one?

I mean they're both respected so I'd probably just go with which you like most city-wise and stuff. I went to Durham and it's a lovely place but I dropped out because I wasn't a fan of other things. Leeds looks like a really cool city. Visit if you can and just think about where you'd rather live.

A lot of the teaching for my course (English) was online, and they didn't plan for grade inflation very well in my opinion. Bit old-fashioned maybe. The people at my college (Stephenson) were lovely but yeah just wasn't thriving there.
