bsc psychology at university of manchester

thinking of firming either uom or sheffield for psychology.
manchester has that old look i really like + higher rankings which i think is important for employability? i'll also be an international student and manchester is pretty international i heard. but ive also heard a bit on how it's hard to get in touch with lecturers etc, i guess cus it's so huge. tho i would think other unis are similar- if anyone's studying at manchester/sheffield, would like your opinion. any other pros/cons of studying there?
I've heard that the psychology classes at Manchester are bad. The professors read off the slide shows and don't teach well. I considered Manchester but decided to go with Nottingham as the teaching style is better. I got rejected from Sheffield but I would have gone if I had gotten an offer. I love the environment and the city. The graduate prospects are extremely high and as an international student, I think you would like it!

Hiya,

Congrats on your offers!

Sheffield has a large international community and there are cultural events throughout the year to enrich all the students' experience. We have ISC which is the society for international students all over the world to come together and celebrate their cultures.

The main lesson at university is that ranking is not important but the connections you make and the extracurriculars you engage in. It is the experience that you are able to gain and Sheffield has a range of opportunities for this; from student-led projects to careers fairs for placements and graduate jobs,

Let me know if you have any more questions,

I dont know where the idea if employability comes from. Its the strangest regressional analysis.

Let me assure you, I wouldn't care less where you graduated from as long as you're not dense and arent an arse to work with
