Durham or Leeds University?!

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    Need to decide which uni to go to by Monday and am still struggling! I want to study BSc Psychology and the offer is AAA at both. I like Leeds because I could study a module of Spanish in the first 2 years and then study abroad or do a work placement year and the city is well connected and looks fun/ has a nice vibe. But I like Durham because it is ranked so much higher (and probably has a more consistent ranking) and the city is pretty. The college system would also be quite homely. I could do a Spanish module in the first year and study abroad but not do a placement. At Leeds would it all be about partying and drugs? Would Durham be too small and slightly dull? I'm up for partying but to a certain extent...

    What's important to you in a university? What are you looking for?

    Well, I want a really good psychology course (I'm interested in both) but to give myself as many options as possible ie with Spanish and as good a head start in terms of work as possible. I also really want to enjoy my time there and find a crowd of my kind of people?
