Uni of York or Uni of Nottingham

Help! I am struggling to firm a uni! It’s either uni of York or uni of Nottingham. I like the diversity of Nottingham and its proximity to home, but I prefer my course at York! What do I pick?

Decide what's most important to you in the long run - the course content and quality at York, or the convenience and diversity at Nottingham. Think about which aspect will contribute more to your overall university experience and future goals. It's a tough decision, but go with what feels right for you.

Hi! We do have a lovely community at York - I'm a recent graduate and I really enjoyed my time here and made friends with lots of different people. There are so many societies that you can join, so it's easy to make friends and find your community. I think that you've just got to go with your gut and I'm sure that wherever you choose, you'll love it!

Hello!

It is certainly difficult to make a decision when you're torn between two choices, especially when both institutions have unique selling points.

I feel that the best way to get started is by evaluating the advantages and drawbacks of studying at both universities. As you mentioned, matters such as the location are of great importance to help you decide. Nonetheless, there are other variables pertaining to student life, your accommodation options, the cost of living, the career services and so forth which are great metrics to ultimately lead you to the best decision possible.

As for University of Nottingham, University Park Campus is a lovely place to study. It is easily accessible from different areas of the city by public transport and it is very diverse since the institution attracts students from all different communities in the UK & around the world. Depending on your course, you may also study at Jubilee Campus or at Sutton Bonington Campus, which are all easy to reach thanks to the Hopper Bus services that link all the campuses (Hopper Bus). It is also worth mentioning that all the campuses have a lot of quiet spaces and group study areas that you may use to your advantage during the academic year to help you revise.

If you have any further questions, feel free to ask us here or through out enquiry forms, which you will find in the course website.

All the best,
Abian 🙂
