    Hi All

    Ok we all know not everyone can get into University of Derby and University of Greenwich... so my friend has asked me to ask everyone

    1) Which is the best out of the two? (FOR SCIENCE)
    2)Which has the best rep?
    3)Which would allow him to move on to a PGCE at a top 5 uni?

    thanks guys

    I'm going to say derby

    1) The bio/Geo labs are amazing and the teaching staff are really good
    2) I have no idea
    3) Thats up to him to put the effort in and to get the good grades and to get the experience.

    The best thing would be to get onto an open day for both and make up his mind.

    great thanks

    Anyone else?

    Hi there!
    I would also plump for Derby University.
    I'm currently studying there, and in the two years i've been there i've seen it go from strength to strength.
    It does tend to get quite a hard time as far as rep goes, but to be honest, i think it's because it's a smaller uni, but i think this works in it's favour. Classes are smaller, which means that lecturing is better. Bonds are formed with the lecturers, and the advice they give is top notch.
    As for PGCE, i'm looking to go to Nottingham for mine, so your friend shoudl have no trouble.
What's the best type of cheese?
