    Only you can answer that question.

    you should figure out which course you find more interesting and don't look at ranks as each uni might be great for some fields and mediocre for others.. From the research that I've done I'd pick Durham but as Sacrebleu said it's a very personal matter.....

    Yes, picking a university is a personal choice but there are a number of factors that you can consider to help choose. Edinburgh will have the highest course fees and living costs followed by Bristol, but the former has the largest library (of your choices) and the national library of Scotland (legal deposit) is close to the university too, which would supplement the university library. It is also one of the financial centres of Europe, which means you would not necessarily have to move away from the city after you have completed your studies, for example. There are a number of ways to frame your decision (I have received offers from two of the universities you listed, but in a humanities subject), and I am looking at ranking, library size, gender ratio, fees and living costs.
