Which english uni to choose for a short exchange for Law/Business (I'm from australia?)


danaus

Hey everyone!

I'm currently studying a Bachelor of Law and Business at the Univeristy of Technology, Sydney Australia.

I am interested in doing an exchange for only one semester to one of the partner universities we have agreements with from the UK. However, I am unsure which to choose my options are:

University of East Anglia, UEA, Norwich

University of Westminster

City University, London

Manchester Metropolitan University

Oxford Brookes University

Loughborough University (I dont think they do law though)

My main concers are; the reputations of the law/business faculties, the avaliability of safe and comfortable accomidation, lifestyle/quality of life and having a true English experience.

Thank you for your help.

Hi. I would go to East Anglia, especially if you're an undergraduate student.

Hey!

Yes I am an undergraduate student, in my 2nd year (We do a combined business and law degree over 5 years in Australia).

Yeh I had a look at East Anglia, it looks like an amazing campus and I would assume because it is not in a big city, finding some nice accomidation would be easier than in London. But do you think being in Norwich it is a bit out of the way? Because I'd only be doing the exchange for one semester, I really want to make the most of my time there and do some travelling to some other european countries if I have time to spare.

Also, what made you suggest East Anglia, is it because of its better reputation? and why would it be a good choice if I'm an undergraduate?

Thank you so much for your help!

Out of all your optiuons, the plausible ones are UEA and City only in my opinion. Loughborough is great, but you are correct in the sense that it does not offer law.

UEA is a great choice for undergraduates. Great campus and a solid reputation. The place is small, but it is personal and friendly. Regarding the place though, you could still travel wherever you want. Being in Norwich would not hinder you at all. I have a friend, who was on exchange to my university in Leicester, he went on to travel to various places and countries throught Europe. It also depends on ther amount of free time your exhange permits. Consult your university for more info.

City, on the other hand is a good university. It has a good reputation for business and law, something you might want to take note of. The biggest selling point however, is its location: London. That says it all. If you are a fan of big cities, and want to experience the lifestyle of a hectic city, then go to City.

Nothing wrong with these 2 unis at all. It is all up to your personal preference. Personally though, I would opt for UEA. It was one of my choices for my undergrad degree.

If travelling is a consideration, I believe there is a small airport at Norwich which would probably service European destinations. How many and how frequent probably available on a web site!
Norwich is a couple of hours by train to London Liverpool Street, with regular trains (subject to delays at the weekends because of the building work for the Olympics).
If you want to travel to the rest of the UK during your stay, then Norwich might be a bit out of the way - probably most trips would be via London.
Main difference as previously pointed out is that UEA is a campus uni on the edge of a regional town (very pretty and good for inland sailing- Norfolk Broads - if that's your thing); City's central London (well near Angel Islington and Sadlers Wells if you like dance).
