[...] International student from the US, did my BA in Japanese Literature, Culture, and Media and would like to do an MA in Intercultural Communications or Intercultural Relations. (Originally wanted to do MA Japanese Studies at SOAS, but decided to wait on that and see how things play out.)
Tried searching for this MA on this forum but it seems to be a (relatively) new field.
Did a search on some UK universities that offer it, and narrowed down my interests/ choices to these:
(a) University of Bedfordshire (Luton)
(b) University of Sheffield
(c) University of the West of England, Bristol
So a few questions to anyone who either a. studied/is studying Intercultural Communications and/or b. attends or attended those universities:
1. Any thoughts on the program/university's reputation?
2. What is the university's area/city/town like? (overall reputation in the UK)
3. Lots of international students?
4. If you chose one of the three above, which would you choose? (just out of curiosity, but you don't hafta answer)

I'd have to agree pretty much with evantej.
Sheffield has a much better reputation in the UK in terms of academia and you will likely get a higher standard of teaching and possibly facilities here.
Location wise, Sheffield is somewhat similar to Bristol in terms of being a larger city in England (Bristol possibly slightly more picturesque but that's possibly a personal viewpoint), whereas Luton is slightly smaller than the other two but situated within easy tavelling distance to London.
If I was to pick one personally it would be Sheffield based simply on their academic standing. Ranking the three; Sheffield, UWE, Befordshire.
Your choice, as with many people, will come down to what you want from studying in the UK in particular.
