i’m studying psychology at uni next year, and i’m so conflicted about my choice between University of Birmingham and University of Leicester.
i’ve loved Leicester since the open day, and still do love it, and i love the societies there way more than Birmingham’s, which is important to me.
but the employability rates and post-grad opportunities seem better. my mum wants me to go for Birmingham, but i think i know i prefer Leicester. so it just feels like i chose Birmingham for my mum because it ranks higher (is this important?)
a con of Leicester though is that two of my sisters already go there, and i’d really like to be away from my family.
the courses at both unis are equally as good to me, but i’m leaning towards Birmingham because of the grade requirements (academic validation). i hold myself to a very high standard due to my mum and how i was raised, so if i got the required grades for Birmingham (A*AA) but went to Leicester for BBB instead, i would feel like i wasted my potential.
but in every other aspect than academically, i’m leaning towards Leicester. is the employability rate between Birmingham and Leicester even that different?
does it sound like I’ve already made a decision? i’m so conflicted. i firmed Birmingham a couple days ago, but i don’t feel too happy about it. but i can’t help but feel i’d regret changing to Leicester. i do like Birmingham to be clear. it’s a nice campus with a nice course and facilities, but it’s not everything to me. also how do i change my firm and insurance choices?
pls help ! thanks
