Oxford brookes or university of essex for sports sci.

Hello I am an international student from India and ive got offers from both universities but cant decide yet about where I'd like to go. My course is BSc sport and exercise sciences. Would appreciate any help with my choice as id rather not regret my decision later on. Any help regarding the arears also is welcomed.
Hi, congradulations on your offers and thank you for reaching out. It's completely understandable to feel this way specially at this time. Since you're considering BSc Sport and Exercise Sciences, the best way to help you choose the right university is things like course structure, faculty expertise, facilities, and opportunities for practical experience or further education. Looking further into factors such as campus, distance, student support services or university culture may help you make the right selection. As I am well aware, the sports facilities and department at Brookes are huge with great student satisfaction.

Wish you all the best,

Melika, student representative at Brookes
