Which one- Leeds/ Strat or Brad


nivag

Hi All... I've got offers from the 3 business schools mentioned in the subject so far and it's time to decide which one. Looking for inputs from the members of this community on which of these school and why, my thoughts-

- Bradford is ahead on the FT rankings but behind Leeds and Strathclyde on a number of other rankings i.e.- Guardian/ Times/ Economist Intelligence Unit

- Bradford is ranked higher in placements in the UK than Leeds and Strathclyde

- In quality of curriculum Leeds and Strathclyde have got a better feedback than Bradford

- all are same on tuition cost.. though Leeds and Strathclyde have a lower living cost than Bradford

- Bradford and Strathclyde are on the HSMP list of universities.. Leeds is not

Thanks...

Hi Nivag,

I have personal experience of all three from when I was in the UK. If you compare the cities themselves, I would say that Strathclyde has a better quality of life, but Leeds the best job opportunities and best city feel. The uni in Leeds has excellent accommodation is situated close to the centre.

I was surprised to see that Bradford leads on cost of living, but if you visit Leeds and Bradford I think you will be surprised at the difference in the cities. They are close neighbours and competitors, but Leeds has had a lot more regeneration money pumped in over the last decade and the city feels a lot nicer.

As for the b-schools, Bradford has had a better reputation than the other two for many years, but it seems that Leeds has been catching up quickly. The b school has been making a lot of investment in facilities and teaching staff. Strathclyde on the other hand has been putting a lot of investment in its international image and overseas cooperations, and I can't help thinking it is at the expense of quality.

Overall though I would say you wouldn't go far wrong with any of them as they are all quite good but none of them really top class.
