    Heya (:

    Just a little problem,

    Although I haven't heard from all my universities, I don't feel Bristol will offer me a place. Which will therefore mean my top choice is between University of Kent and the University of Birmingham.

    Kent is MUCH higher in the league tables for English Literature (which would be my main focus area), but Birmingham is higher for Classics than Kent.
    And also, Birmingham has a higher overall reputation.
    I don't care about nightlife or anything like that, I'm just worried because I've heard nothing but bad things about Birmingham English lecturers which is slightly worrying...

    Should I just wait to meet the lecturers before making my decision, or does anyone have any experience from these universities for English or Classics (or both!)?

    Your opinions would really help (:

    Thank you ever so much,

    xoxo

    I recommend you take advantage of open days to visit them, and make your own decision. I've heard good and bad things about both, it's a very individual decision.
