which of these unis do you reckon is the best for an insurance? considering employability, quality of life, quality of the maths degree, and social life there? :confused:

I'm a quiet & shy person - any idea which one of these would suit me? Preferably a rural setting; not sure whether york or durham fits this description.

employability and quality of maths degrees - all good universities so dont see a problem there
quality of life and social agenda can mean so many different things, wihtout knowing what you like how can you tell. some people thrive in a london uni and would hate the relative backwardness of the social life at durham, which is what a heck of a lot of people love about the place.

from what your saying about yourelf, i would say durham. its fairly rural, VERY pretty, kinda quiet, but a great place! (its my insurance )
I know the nightlife isnt that great but newcastle is only about 15 mins away and the nightlife there is
Also at durham you have the college system which is probably good if your quite shy as you'll get that small community, and i know all colleges at durham make sure they have a good time! (i know quite alot of people who went/go there and they all loved it)

not sure about the quality of the maths degree, but durham is a well respected university and employers wont turn their noses up at a degree
from there!

Hope this helps you,

pick the one that you like 2nd most.. or, the one you think will be most lenient with the grades.

i had a friend who went for the one she liked 2nd most, grades the same as the first. missed the offer, neither would take her, but calling one of her previous offers they told her if she'd make them insurance they would have let her in anyway.. :mad:

cool, what durham college you applied to? i applied to St chads lol - was rather random and based my decision on the size (chads smallest), position (sloset to maths dep i believe for those lazy mornings), an highest no of firsts out of all the durham college, lol - so there is the whole lot in the bag - pretty cool, but durham ranks 30th for amths, and this is really putting me off :eek:

hey, i applied to st aidans ( fairly near the science dep! i know someone who went there and loved it, and also there fairly good at rowing! ) i don't know much about chads but i'm sure you'd have a great time there!

it might be 30th, but if you think, thats 30th out of quite a large no.! i still think it would be a decent degree! but you need to think about whats most important to you i guess, is it the course (or quality of course)? or whether your going to have a good time and enjoy it? i don't think you should go somewhere if you arnt going to enjoy yourself and like the place just because its higher up in some table. your gonna spend a large chunk of your life there, you have to like it! but thats personnal choice....

UCL seems to be unpopular for some reason, lol. funnily enough it ranks higher than oxford, for maths!!! how ridiculous is that! damn with league tables, lol

Its between durham and imperial i think...but thing is there is no rock-climbing in Durham, and i'll be donig a lot of that in uni!!
