    Ugh. I'm in a bit of a dilemma. I have offers from Dundee and Aberdeen for Geography (MA) (although I'm still waiting on Edinburgh and Stirling). I went to visit Aberdeen recently and I absolutely fell in love with the place. However, I think the general consensus is that as Dundee's Geography course is in the top 20 in the UK (according to the Guardian university guide - which Aberdeen is no. 45 in - as well as generally hearing about it), it would be a wiser move to go there than Aberdeen. I'm really torn. Aberdeen's offer is also considerably harder than Dundee's (BBBB and AB respectively), so I don't know if it's worth working so hard to get into Aberdeen when I could have given myself a break this year and got into a better course. Thoughts?

    At the end of the day its about going somewhere you'll be happiest at, and if you loved Aberdeen then its worth working hard to get the grades. There is no point going to Dundee just because of its position in league tables, which after all arent always reliable. Aberdeen is still a very good uni so its hardly going to dent graduate prospects by going there. And if you were to use your geography degree to go outside of scotland Aberdeen is more well known.

    Ah, thank you it's nice to have someone support me! I think half of the doubt has came from family/friends etc saying, "But Aberdeen is so far away! You'll miss home too much!" I was thinking recently of canceling my other two choices so I could firm Aberdeen now, but I'm too curious

    I just firmed Glasgow, and put down Stirling as my insurance.
    So glad that parts over

    I have a couple of questions about UCAS adjustment though ( I know its early, but oh well), and I was wondering if this would be the right place to ask?

    TUO Sheffield: Japanese and Linguistics - Conditional
    TUO Manchester: Japanese and English - Unsuccessful
    TUO Newcastle: Japanese and English - Unsuccessful
    School of Oriental and African Studies: Japanese and Linguistics - No reply
    Oxford Brookes: Japanese and English - Unsuccessful

    I'm doing an Access course, so I cannot resit any modules, and have failed 2 of Sheffield's module requirements (Distinction) by one grade. So I'm now having to consider holding out for two months and hoping Sheffield still accepts me, or cutting my losses now and going into UCAS extra.

    D:
    whats an access course?
    The offers are the other way around for me XD I got rejected for Japanese studies at sheffield, but got conditional offers for the same course at manchester, newcastle and leeds.

    It's just like a foundation year to lay the basics for future study in a subject

    A foundation year is usually subject-specific or a general direction. An Access course however comprises of various different subjects, however the aim is also to lead to higher education (hence the Access to HE). Trying to study japanese after an access course, seems like a hard route, unless there are access courses that teach languages too?

    Oh right cool, thanks for that. The access courses I've heard of have been subject-specific but I'm no expert in the area.

    You should receive something that has a summary of your choices stating which is your firm, etc.

    Got offers from LSE - Int'l Relations, Westminster - Int'l Relations and Spanish. BUT, rejected from London Met - Int'l Law and Relations. I was like...WTF. London Met offers me a foundation year course though.
    I don't know which one to firm, LSE or Westminster... I'd like to do an Int'l Relations and language with a year abroad (Only Westminster offers that) - but I hear that LSE is really reputable.
    Help?
