    Hi guys!

    First of all, congratulations to all on their results and getting into uni.

    I have an issue. I have known for a while that I wasn't happy with the university that I had chosen as my firm, so I was hoping to go through Adjustment or Clearing, so that I could get the opportunity to change my firm choice.

    Luckily, I have managed to get into a few, and have finalised my options between Leeds for PPE (Philosophy, Politics & Economics), or Southampton for Politics and International Relations. However, I am struggling to decide which one is the best option for me.

    I really like Southampton for the atmosphere, but I like Leeds for the course and job prospects.

    Any advice?????
    Any help would be very much appreciated.
    Thank you so much for reading this as well xx

    Course > atmosphere?

    Wow, big geographical distance too. The atmosphere can change with the cohort of students. Both are really good Unis but if Leeds has the better course and better job prospects (I'm sure both will set you up for good job prospects) then maybe that's better as the course is something you can't change. Go with what you enjooyyyyy.
