    I've had 5 offers back for UCLAN, Lancaster, Northumbria, Cumbria and Teesside, and I'm in the process of choosing them. Entry requirements means I've got to put Cumbria as my insurance, as I don't want to go to Teesside. But I'm stuck on picking my first choice out of the remaining three? It's for criminology and criminal justice/sociology. Any help would be appreciated

    Which uni do you like the most, of all of them (including Cumbria)?

    Have you visited them?

    Because some unis just seem to click when visiting and others don't. Everyone always raves about Edinburgh but it just didn't feel right when I went there, it wasn't me!

    I've only been to see Lancaster, but I'm unsure on it still, even though everyone I know has good opinions about it. Cumbria doesn't have a very good reputation, my head of sixth forms trying to put me off it :/ and there isn't an open day at Northumbria until Feb next year, and to be honest I haven't looked into UCLAN much, I'm just stuck :/

    Lancaster is the best university out of the options you have given but I understand that Northumbria has a v. good reputation for Law.

    You don't need to make your decision til May, so I'd wait til you can see them all.
