From what I hear Soton is one of the best for engineering. I plan on applying to Liverpool and Soton for English lit, so you have my word that they're... nice.

Personally, I hated Liverpool. It just seemed a horrible place to spend part of your life.

Southampton is by far the best on that list. Unconditional too, you must be a genius. Congrats

I was born in Southampton and its a lovely place. I don't know anything about the uni itself, but it's an excellent location.

Liverpool sucks ?? I thought it was one of the friendliest and an overall good place ??

These jokers don't know what they're on about, they watch Brookside and assume things... Although, I've never been to Liverpool University but I heard it was alright.

Liverpool is meant to be a great university. Plus it's got that award for the city of culture thing. Sheffield though... Lived there for a few years and it's not the best place to be in my opinion. Depends, what are you looking for? The best education or a good education with a really great time in the city you are in?

Capital of Culture, it also means there is a lot more going on in the music scene in Liverpool this year.

Liverpool is a top class Uni, but I don't know whether it has a reputation for engineering like Soton has. As somone said, go visit them and see which you prefer

Well, the Uni of Surrey is in Guildford, which is a fairly boring town (i live really close by)
Theres not massive amounts of places to go out at night, and its pretty expensive to live there
Not sure what the Uni itself is like

I'd say Southampton, but I don't know much about the others.

How did you manage to get unconditionals?

Sheffield is clearly the most prestige out of that lot, in my opinion.. along with Liverpool, of course.

Anyway it's not about just that. Either you will like where you are, or you will not (essentially).

Most opinions here are worth noting but remember alot of people just recommend where they happen to have been, even just for a visit or if they know someone who knows someone who knows someone at said place.

Edit - CONGRATULATIONS, by the way TS.

If you have an unconditional offer from Sheffield University you should be very, very pleased my friend. I bet it is fantastic for Aerospace Engineering!

Aerospace Engineering - MEng (H400)
Aerospace Engineering - BEng (H402)
Aerospace Engineering with Private Pilot Instruction - BEng (H460)
Aerospace Engineering with Private Pilot Instruction - MEng (H490)
Aerospace Engineering with a Year in Industry - MEng (H405)
Aerospace Engineering with a Year in Industry - BEng (H404)
Aerospace Engineering with a Year in North America - MEng (H406)
Aerospace Materials - MEng (H403)
Aerospace Materials - BEng (H401)

Nice.

Uh oh it's the lovely league tables! Sheffield (overall) is 22nd, not bad at all.

It's hard to recommend a university for someone you know well let alone someone you haven't met on the 'net. Either way unless you're extremely unlucky whatever university you go to you will have an amazing time and if you make an effort a really good social life. The only other way to help would be to look at league tables.

True that.

112 Thames Valley 67% 0.4 20.6 747 212 69.5 48.4 62.7 256

That is where I did my GCSEs and A Levels. I sadly never got the educational silverspoon, alas.
#24
I ****ed up my A Levels and still managed to get into a decent uni through clearing and passed my first year without doing any work. I have no idea how I got this lucky considering most people on my course got like ABB.

Really? That much fucking suck. That's really shameful... We have our fair share of idiots over here, like anywhere.

Unless you're unfortunate enough to meet some complete cunts, you should be fine.

Congratulations on those offers though. I'm guessing you deserve it

It's very rare to encounter racism at university because unis are completely multicultural. I don't know the exact figures but I'd assume that 60% of students in a standard university are foreign.
