「Choosing a uni and what made me choose OBU ☆」・・・Jenから!

Ok, so it's me again :) Today I thought I would talk to you about some of the things that I think are important to think about when you are considering what uni in the UK to go to and the things that made me choose Oxford Brookes.

I think one of the first to things to thing about is the location. Do you want to be by the sea, maybe Brighton, Portsmouth or Southampton, or maybe you want to enjoy the south like Oxford, Reading, or Birmingham. Maybe you want to try the north, Glasgow or Edinburgh which are right up there, or half way between with Newcastle or Manchester. Although its not just the cities you have to consider, some universities are or have campuses out in the countryside such as Swansea, so do you want to be immersed in nature or do you mingle in the city centre.


Location is important but there are two other things which I think are equally important when choosing a uni, one is obvious, the Course but the second is less obvious but equally important, the facilities plus support networks that a university offers. Without a doubt, the course that you apply for has to be right for you, and offer everything that you want, this is simple. Although I think the strength of a course and its department should not be based just on university rankings but on what it actually offers in terms of content, facilities and the lecturers that run it, as they can "make or break" your course. The general facilities and support networks are sometimes forgotten about but are soo super important. Do they have 24hr computer rooms/late library open times or Sports facilities, if these are things you will need? Do they also have financial assistance and advisors/councilors' if things go wrong?


I chose Brookes as it allowed me to combine Languages and business but also gave me the option through the modular system to choose other classes such as Law modules. It gave me the opportunity to do work placements and exchanges abroad (3 of which I managed to fit in and loved). It also gave lots of opportunities to work, so I could fit in paid work alongside my studies. The most important thing to me though, which Brookes was able to offer me, was a great community feel campus with loads of facilities that was really close to the city but also 10-15mins away from the countryside. So I could have the best of both worlds in regards of course, facilities, campus and city as well as great travel connections so I could still travel around the country to see my friends.
