What Sort of University Do You Want To Go To?

As you might expect universities are not all the same.

Both universities may be very good at what they do.

Old or new university.

Generally, older universities will do more research, recruit a higher proportion of school leavers and offer more traditional academic courses. Newer universities will be more locally and vocationally-orientated and recruit more mature and part-time students.

The right course for you is a greater priority than the age of the establishment.

Large or small university

Universities also vary greatly in size, from fewer than 2,000 students to over 30,000.

Student numbers are only a guide to where a university sits on this spectrum.
