Which University - Help!!
Hi, I was hoping that somebody would be able to help me, basically, I've been lucky enough to get 4 offers (still waiting on one) to study English Literature but I really can't decide where to go! I've been offered 3A's from Exeter, Cardiff and York and AAB for Birmingham. I'm still waiting on Durham but I've pretty much decided I don't want to go there. My insurance choice is decided for me, so thats fine, but I really can't decide on my first choice!

I've been back to each of them on post offer open days and from that ruled out York, so its down to Cardiff and Exeter. I think course wise, Exeter is the better choice, but I'm really really worried that I'll get bored there, I've heard theres not much to do and it is really small... I come from Cambridge so I'm used to the small city thing and I'm not sure whether I want to go to another! The main problem is the fact that Cardiff is prefect for that! I'm half welsh and my sister is already there so I know that student life there is amazing and I love Cardiff, but I don't know whether I'd be doing myself a disservice by going there course wise...

Also, I really want to go into journalism or publishing of some sort, possibly to do with fashion, so I'm interested in the creative writing aspect of both degrees and the idea of being able to do a module from journalism and media at Cardiff in year one, which I can't do at Exeter.

I think thats about everything, so any wisdom on the courses at both, career prospects and student life in particular would really REALLY help!

Thank you Smile
