    I would have thought Edinburgh would be the best University on the list but if you intend to practice in England it's a bit of a circuitous route.

    EXETER all the way. Good course, good reputation, great campus university,warmer down in the South West.

    Newcastle for a city university.
    Edinburgh if you want to practice in Scotland.

    If you want to practise in Scotland, Edinburgh.

    If you want to practise in England, I would say for most people, Exeter.

    Personally, I rate Edinburgh higher than Exeter, and would choose to study there even if I wanted to practise in England. Simply because I would be prepared to sacrifice two years and the cost of the GDL for the 'all round' reputation of Edinburgh.

    Do you want to practice in Scotland? If yes Edinburgh. If no, not Edinburgh. This assumes that the reason you're posting this means you don't have a burning desire to go there, in that case it might be worth it as you can still get sponsored for the GDL.

    Do you like the thought of a big clubbing scene and some incredible nights out? If so Newcastle stands out. If you're not into that doesn't matter so much.

    Would you be happy living in London and all the expense and slightly different student experience (no defined student area in your second and third years for example) that entails. But it also brings a buzz and stuff going on that other cities just can't match. Also do you think QMUL is worth the extra risk of the A*?

    Exeter and Lancaster probably pretty similar in terms of being campus unis which are nice and green etc near to fairly small cities. Is one much nearer to home for you and if so does it matter that it is? Also Exeter's, in my opinion, got the better rep of the 2.

    If you want to practise in England or Wales, I'd opt for Newcastle or Exeter.

    I think you need to decide this for yourself!
    Narrow it down by campuses you liked (if you visited), busuries they may have, accommodation, reputation, league tables etc etc etc...
    Good luck!!

    As in QMUL's offer is A*AA isn't it? According to this anyway http://www.law.qmul.ac.uk/undergradu...100/index.html

    So, just that it's a harder offer and thus there is a greater risk you could miss that offer, compared to (I think) AAA or lower at the others. If you've got a subject you're pretty much guaranteed an A* in then it's not a problem.

    No, missing an offer is not an option because these offers are all unconditional due to the fact that I already hold my qualifications (IB diploma that is). So You think QMUL would be a good choice?
