    I am a prospective international (non EU) student in my early thirties who wants to study Law as a senior status student in the United Kingdom. I applied to the following universities through UCAS and received the following corresponding offers:
    1. University of Aberdeen - Conditional Offer
    2. University of Leicester - Conditional Offer
    3. University of Leeds - Unconditional Offer
    4. University of Liverpool - Conditional Offer
    5. University of Southampton - Unconditional Offer

    I have done some research on the above universities, and I have till 22nd July to make my final choice. I would like some opinions from fellow forummers about the schools i have chosen. Basically, I would like to know about the good, the bad, the ugly, and the beautiful about every university, largely based on experiences.

    Criteria which I would use to select my courses are as follows:
    1. Programme and course selection
    2. The reputation of the university and also through its rankings
    3. The facilities
    4. Academic Support services
    5. Career Development and Support Services
    6. Financial Aid and scholarship opportunities
    7. The location of the university
    8. Student activities, for instance law societies, mooting competitions, negotiation competitions, among others.

    Initially, I was leaning towards Aberdeen due to its Scots Law and English Law Accelerated LLB, but now I am leaning towards Leicester and Leeds. So I just wanted some helpful opinions and extra input from others on the forum.

    Your comments and opinions are appreciated

    Thank You.
