    They're all important factors. Both universities have good reputations and are good for politics.
    Have you looked at both courses for similarities/ differences that might sway you significantly?
    Personally I love Birmingham as a uni and a city

    I'm from Birmingham, and I personally think that as a city it'd be a fantastic place to go to Uni.

    The only reason I'm not applying here is because I want to go away from home.

    I have no idea about courses, but apparently the Universities are of about equal rank.

    I'd look carefully at the course content and the differences between them in things like compulsory modules, and whether you can take your electives in other subjects (if that's something you're interested in). Both are equally good universities and fun cities, with good student lifestyles.

    Depends on how you like your winters. It's absolutely freezing in Birmingham, which means that Leeds must be like the Arctic Circle!

    At Birmingham all POLSIS first year students take the same core modules (regardless of degree choice) where as the Leeds course is more flexible.
