Is it just me, or am i correct in saying that Southampton is not as highly regarded as a uni as it should be? It seems to be near the top for almost every subject...
The reason i'm asking this is because i've spoken to a lot of people about the reputations of the unis i'm considering (Southampton, Bristol and Exeter) and it seems that Bristol has the best reputation, even though they are the worst for my subject (Modern Languages).
So i guess what i'm saying is that my heart is with Bristol/Exeter and my head is with Southampton... Which am i supposed to choose??
Do they actually matter?
