Those in UK! I have some unis in mind.

Bristol, birmingham, nottingham, manchester. Do you think I could get in?

Are Warwick, KCL, LSE, UCL really out of reach?

U get 5 choices in UCAS.
try 2 stretch Uni ie: Warwick, KCL, LSE, UCL
2 reach Uni: Lancaster, Bristol, Bath,
1 safety: Cardiff

I would shy away from Birmingham/Manchester cause they offer DL here, don't want prospective employer to mistook U for studying locally here at SIM

Hey! I didn't study business but i heard LSE is one of the best, maybe you can include it as one of your options if you meet the grade requirements and can afford London's cost of living?

Also, I wrote a guide to applying to UK unis and it includes a part on how to choose unis here

Hello!

Do you happen to know which country is better to pursue Nursing undergraduate studies? UK or Singapore? UK being University of Edinburgh, University of Glasgow and King's College London. While Singapore being NUS.

I've been searching online but nothing came up on how these few universities were compared for their nursing degree and curriculum.

Would appreciate your help!

KCL(22),Edinburg(25),NUS(41),Glasgow(45)

Based on rankings,it's definitely KCL ,emerging as the winner for the rest in terms of overall academia for health sciences such as nursing.

Uk is definitely more expensive to live and study in, on the other hand, Singapore is closer to home and cheaper to study at.

I am looking to pursue biomedical sciences in Uk/Australia, so I can assure you that living expenses in Uk is more than Australia, you want to keep that in mind.

KCL cause it's ranked higher but here a diff uni is higher? World ranking is best way to select a uni?

However in both local ranking system Edinburg is at #1, KCL is either #10 or #33

UK today maybe more expensive cause the Oz dollar. But u are right it's more expensive in tuition. Living London would definitely cost more tha most oz cities. Just a yr or two ago UK was cheaper than oz, there was a increase of singaporean going UK and a drop in going oz

USDY tuition aud$29500 and living expenses of aud$373 a week
http://sydney.edu.au/future-students...uate-Guide.pdf

KCL tuition £19,570(aud$37300) and living £1k a mth (aud$1900)
http://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/ug/fundin.../overseas.aspx
http://www.kcl.ac.uk/nursing/study/a...vingcosts.aspx

Edingburgh fees £20850 living £200 a week comparable to Usdy
http://www.docs.sasg.ed.ac.uk/fees/u...Programme_Name

If cost a big concern try Canada
McGill tuition cad$20k (aud$21k) and living cad$14k comparable to Usdy
