    It's better yes. But league tables are not the most reliable way to judge this.

    Ooops I never relalise when these things are in postgrad. I just assume anyone considering postgrad would be able to work these things out themself.

    Ignore my previous post OP as I have no idea where is better for postgrad etc.

    Looks like it isn't very easy for you to pick up sarcasm.

    It's an Internet forum. It's often hard to pick up sarcasm (even harder for someone who's on the autistic spectrum).

    I thought you probably were being sarcastic but on this forum you never know. Also, I'm sure the OP doesn't want sarcasm (and, like others, can easily misterpret sarcasm) and would prefer constructive advice.

    I wouldn't go to Exeter university on the basis of it's location. If you were basing your choice on location then Leeds all the way.

    The main reason I may go to Exeter is the location. You have to remember people like different things.

    I crave some countryside ^^

    As far as league tables go and graduate prospects- Exeter. Leeds has a reputation...for being a great big piss up ha. It depends what your priorities are.. personally i'd go with Exeter because i'm not much of a big (polluted) city person and also because at the end of the day i'd have a degree from a well respected university.

    I am currently a first-year at Exeter, doing English Literature, and I love it. Exeter is a beautiful city with lots of countryside to walk in, but also lots of shops and such for those who like that kind of thing. (And a nearby Tesco...yay. ) I also find the university really wonderful, and have met great people. The accommodation in my experience is awesome, and the course is ace.

    Yeah but some of Leeds' halls are practically in the countryside, and you're only ever a bus/train/bike/car ride away anyway. Headingley is a nice suburb then as you go further out it starts becoming more rural....

    Some lovely countryside outside of Otley etc.

    I don't doubt it, I was merely offering the flip side of the coin. Similarly, you can get off your face in Exeter too lol.

    It's not just the fact that it's isolated and sorta ostracised from main society. It has a reputation for "rahs". Now so has Leeds, and I'm ofthe thinking that as long as you're friendly and down to earth I don't care about your background, but I assume it would be similar to Durham in the respect that it's economic demographic leans toward the more monied, etc, end. If I wanted to go there badly enough I still would but my stupid class-consciousness stopped me applying to Oxbridge in '06.

    So it's not just the location that would stop me applying there. I'd be more inclined to go to a university and city with a more diverse student body.

    Socialism, of course, because that way everybody gets jelly.

    Hahaha. After posing that question, I actually did start to wonder about what my answer is also.

    I think that you're quite right if one considers socialism as a means of praxis as well as an ideology. Whereas, if one takes "socialism" to be something that can exist only in the abstract, the answer depends on how hungry you are.

    Point being: Exeter is gay and smells.
