No one can really tell you which one is best for you, it comes down to what factors are most important to you. There is a comparison tool on TSR here.
Things to consider might include: location, content and structure of the course, assessment methods, cost of living in the area, availability of accommodation, availability of part-time work in the area, graduate prospects, any societies and sports teams you're interested in, culture (might help to visit both if possible) etc

Hi there,

To introduce myself I'm Joao. In my final year studying BSc Economics at Surrey University, I am working as a Campus Ambassador for JP Morgan. I recently finished my one-year industrial placement as an Economist for the British Government's Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra). I also had the opportunity to work as a Private Secretary to the Minister of Environment and Biosecurity.

It's great to hear you have applied to Surrey!:smile:

Trying to decide what University is better for you is a tough decision. However, some tips I have is to look closer into each course, the modules etc. From there, have a general idea of what system you like better and what modules appeal to you more. You can also look at the university and compare the universities based on facilities, support or anything you think is important to your for the university to have; you can look at the accommodation or the town. That way, you are considering many factors that may help you decide. I would also suggest speaking to your family and friends about each University and see which one you're more passionate about when talking to them.

At Surrey Business School, we inspire positive change in business and society, individuals and organisations, locally and globally by delivering impactful research and courses that promote a global and digital mindset for the industry's future. Our BSc (Hons) International Business Management course offers many elective modules. This allows you to explore our globalised economy and how organisations of all sizes start, run and thrive in international markets. As a Surrey Business School student, you'll also get hands-on experience with real businesses. The entrepreneurial and life skills you'll gain will enable you to accelerate your innovative thinking into practice, opening up a wide range of career opportunities.

You'll have excellent opportunities to experience international business in action through our exchange programme and the chance to do a placement or study abroad during your placement year. Our award-winning Professional Training placements prepare students for roles in the industry. We deliver on jobs, too. We were named the University of the Year for Graduate Employment in The Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide 2022.

I hope this helps, and if you have any questions or want to learn more about Surrey, please let me know!

Joao (Economics)
