I would rather get a first from a less respected university than a 3rd from a top university. People will disagree with that but it is my opinion.

I chose Plymouth University over some much higher placed universities in the league tables because I liked the location, uni itself and the course.

I would go to a uni with a course that I like and can handle with a worst nightlife and rep. I don't think in the future that I will go to student union activities and events that much anyway. I would rather get a good degree from a uni instead.

But is it better to get a first from Soton, or a 2:1 from Bristol? Hmm! :idea:

They are both good uni's though, so there can't be much comparison.

True. But there's no that much between the courses for her either. She really like the Soton one, but think the Bristol one is ok.

In the end a good degree classification is better than judging about the nightlife and those kinds of stuff. :p:

i'd go with numero uno. If they pass a good course then they can get a lot of money so thenthey can have an active nightlife!

I personaly would rather good nightlife, if I was in a town that I hated I would have no motivated to work hard, good social life is just as important as anything else in my opinion. Remember you have to spend at least three years there so you will want to at least be happy there.

I had a very different criteria when choosing universities, what was important for me was a university that did the course I want to do, due to my lack of Maths Salford, MMu and Bolton were the only viable options.

I voted for the first one, when applying for jobs the rep of the uni will be of advantage and plus if you dont like the course, you shouldnt have applied in the first place. Plus it depends on the individual but a rigid course structure wouldnt be that bad as you're studying the area you've initially chosen.

I think the course is the most important thing to be honest. If you don't like the course you are likely find it boring and not do as well. I would choose Soton over Bristol anyway, and if you like the course better why not go there?

But you may hate the location in which would be just punishing yourself. I think social factors are often underestimated when choosing a university. People often pick with numbers and statistics then when they get their realise its actually in RiotVille and the nearest club is 25 miles away.

^That website is still about. That uni is obviously fake, why don't they take the website down? It's kind of annoying me.

Nightlife is not that important, as you can go somewhere near for a good nightlife anyway. As I said before, a good course and/or uni is important.

A university may have a good rep, but the course/department you want may be poor. If the course is poor, you're less likely to excel and reach your potential?
