Val,

If you have a look at the Time University Guide there is not much difference bewteen Durham(6th) and Nottingham(7th) so from that point of view both are really.

What I would guess you need to think about is what kind of environment you want? Durham is a collegiate university which follows the model of Oxford and Cambridge which can be very nice and welcoming but it also mean that everyone will know who you are so there is no hiding from people. Also Durham is small town (although offically it is a city because it has a cathedral) and does not have that much to do. Nottingham is a campus based university within easy reach of Nottingham city centre, it is a lively city but also has a crime problem (highest gun crime rate in the UK) so you would be best advised to seek campus accomodation. Don't let that put you off because the people I know who have gone to Nottingham have really enjoyed. As I said you need to think about what you kind of place you want to study in, big city or collegiate town.

Hope the information helps.

Statistics do not lie, liars use statistics!

Don't be obsessed by these tables- thy are at the end of the day produced by newspapers- not official!!

Consider the size of teaching teams! And chosee places where there is an Institute at international trade and there is a vast amount of teachers working in the field!

Look at Swansea for International Trade for example- Institute of International Shipping and Trade Law (ISTL) is a very famous institute which does training for City firms, BIMCO and the BP.
