    Hey guys, basically I have the tough decision to make between studying Fine Art at Sheffield Hallam or Bristol UWE in September for 3 years. I am very indecisive so this is extremely hard for me. From my research, I can see the course are fairly similar so it is more deciding between the cities themselves, and also the facilities.
    On one side, I would love to go to Bristol as I know it well, therefore it is a safe option and I have had my heart set on Briz for years. I live about an hour away so am close to family, home, friends, boyfriend etc. I visit Bristol quite a lot as some of my friends go to uni there, and it is a good place to go out- I LOVE the nightlife there, just my sort of scene. Also the accommodation looks really modern and great there.
    However on the other side, I would like to try somewhere completely new, bit further away from everything I know- so exciting and an adventure. I've heard that Sheffield is such a friendly place, as well as a very cheap city to live in! It would be good to get out of my comfort zone and go up North. This is the riskier option, also the accommodation looks okay but some not as modern as Bristol's. The art building is in the city centre and easily accessible, however in Bristol it is a bus journey away into the countryside, which seems a bit annoying.
    These are some of my views and I was wondering if anyone could help me out in deciding. I have to decide by June 8th, however I need to choose way before then as I don't want to be left with rubbish accommodation! Would be a great help if anyone could post what they think on either institution.
    Thanks for your help! Ellie x
