I've never heard of Writtle or Warwickshire universities, but avoid Greenwich. It isn't a very good university at all.

There will be so many factors that will influence your decision: living, costs, nightlife etc. Going to Greenwich will probably be more expensive primarily because it's in London.


The best thing to do is to research into this.

I would say Writtle. It is in beautiful surroundings, close to Chelmsford which has good shopping, nightlife etc but is still close enough to London, but without the expense. Also, Alan Tichmarsh a famous tv gardener went there!

Living cost is almost the same everywhere. What concernes Greenwich, I would have to study in it's partner college which is em.. I don't know where. I was also thinking of Writtle, but is it really a good choice? What about Warwickshire? Does it have anything common with Warwick? I prefer living close to London. What to do...

It is, basically, a rather crap former polytechnic. It has a poor research rating and terrible teaching. Yes, the facilities may be ok (I seem to remember reading somewhere the main campus has been refurbished/rebuilt or something), but apart from that it is a place to avoid. It is near the bottom of practically every league table you can point a finger at! Eg.Times - 94th out of 99, Guardian - 87th out of 119.

Warwickshire college is not the same as warwick uni. If it was a partner college or something I would definately go there I got one more offer from Northampton for English/Equine studies. I would like to do this course, but what about this university?
