Try the league tables compiled by the newspapers The Times and The Guardian. Also try the Virgin Alternative Guide. I've forgotten all the web addresses for these, maybe another member can help...

Only you can answer that question.

Put yourself in the employers shoes. Look at the list of Universities available and see which one has the best name. Also, look at the entry requirements to see what 'difficulty level' they run at.

They're pretty much equal academically - every year come about the same, 20th-ish. In terms of reputation they're the same too.

So you need to look at other things. For what specific course? There could be academic variation there.

And other stuff. Sheffield is legendary for clubbing, also has a good student union venue, but hills. Everywhere!

Leicester of course has a huge proportion of Asian students, though my mate there was saying there's heavy conflict between them, white and black students, it's all very segregative.

There are also the newly opened Peninsular, Brighton & Sussex, East Anglia, Durham & Newcastle (I think) and about 3 others - mainly opened in areas where medical schools weren't available to people wanting to study from home and so to encourage a greater range of people from different backgrounds to consider studying medicine.

*ALL* medical degrees in the UK are approved by the BMA and so *ALL* degrees will be of equal standing to employers (and to be honest if you want to be a doctor you really don't need to think about employment prospects as it's a dead cert).

Some courses (Oxbridge particularly) are more focussed on the theory and you wont get much in the way of patient contact for years, others are modular and involve patient contact from the start. Some include a compulsory extra yr to achieve an intercalated degree (A BSc in biological sciences alongside you BM) while others just provide this as an option.

It's a good one, with a decent rep - when I was on work experience, all the junior doctors I went round with were from there and had really enjoyed it. I only didn't apply there because I felt it was too close to home.
