Hey there,

I've already chosen my firm choice, but am totally clueless on which to choose for my insurance. I was wondering if anyone could give any input on which would be better for studying law, Lancaster or Reading. I hope to meet the offer for my firm choice, but in the case that I don't, I'm at a loss of which insurance I should choose.

So, which is better for Law? Lancaster or Reading?

I prefer the area of Reading based on pictures and YouTube videos, I love how the area looks in contrast to Lancaster. But the quality of teaching and employability rate after is more important to me, and am happy to receive any input to help my decision! Thank you

Whichever one you like the best. Honestly, you are not going to find anyone who can provide an unbiased comparison between the two. Everyone will have an opinion based on their own priorities and decision process, and personal values, which are probably very different to yours. The best you can do is look up the stats online, take them with a pinch of salt, and pick whichever university you like more or have the best gut feeling about.

Hi there,

I completely agree with what has been said above. Everyone will have different opinions and whilst it's important to make an informed decision, your gut instinct on which place you like more is going to play a huge part! Hopefully people from Reading can tell you about their experience too.

From my experience of being a humanities student at Lancaster, the quality of teaching has been really high and the careers department is incredibly good at helping you with employability after graduation and the careers team is also available to alumni for life. Placement years are very popular at Lancaster too. In order to learn more about a Law student's experience, I would visit Unibuddy to find a student to ask course specific questions. One way to see what the learning experience is to find out who teaches in the department and what they specialise in and might be another way to compare the universities. If you follow this link and search for 'Academic Staff', you can see who teaches at undergrad.

Here is a little info about the city of Lancaster too: I'm in my final year at Lancaster so I know it rather well by now and I've really loved my time here. One of the things that makes Lancaster so nice is the campus: it's lovely and green and everyone lives there in first year so it's really easy to meet up with your friends and there's 175+ societies to join so it's easy to find something to do that you love. The city of Lancaster is about 1/3 student population and it's not big but in some ways, that's a pro because everyone lives within 15 minutes walking distance. There's a huge park called Williamson Park that hosts the festival Highest Point once a year, several theatres and loads of restaurants and cafes meaning plenty of student jobs, both on and off campus. The train station is right in the centre of town and it's an 1hr to Manchester, 1h30 to Liverpool, 2h to Edinburgh and 2h30ish to London depending on which train you get. The Lake District is also so close which is really lovely to go to for the weekend or a day out. 
The university itself has a collegiate system, which is really great for student support, the Student's Union runs loads of different events every year from Freshers Week, to Roses (sports competition against York uni), Bonfire Night, the student nightclub and so much more. 


I hope that is helpful! Let me know if you have any other questions!
