I've been to both of these unis for open days and I felt really disappointed by Edinburgh due to their lack of organization although I am aware of the grand scale of people attending, but the city is literally everything I've wanted (coastal/ access to the ocean, beautiful architecture, vibrant and lively) and I think it would be the craziest experience should I move away to Scotland. The course itself didn't really appeal to me as it did in Nottingham since psychology in Edinburgh is much more stats heavy (I don't mind it I suppose). Nottingham on the other hand, I love the university itself but its close to home and I'm not too sure about the city (haven't actually seen it much). I suppose one could argue that I could just live in Edinburgh after university but!!!!!
Can anyone give me some advice about it. Realistically Edinburgh is too far away and I could get really lonely and also, the professor at the university giving information about the course didn't seem too approachable? (My own judgement, sorry) Nottingham had lovely staff and pupils.
Other unis I was thinking about are Loughborough (1.5 hours away) , Lancaster (2.5 hours away) and maybe Newcastle (3.5 hours away) but I haven't seen them in person yet.
