    I love Cardiff, have been there quite a bit and have friends who live there. The course I'm doing there seems good and it's obviously the 'better' uni of the two. However I might not recieve NHS funding (i'm doing a healthcare course) which would mean relying on my parents to pay all my tuition fees if this happens. I'd have to take a gamble

    I am apathetic towards UWE, it seems alright, didn't love it when I went to look round but it wouldn't be the end of the world if I ended up there - they have told me i'll recieve NHS funding so finance wise it's the most sensible option.

    So it's basically a question of head or heart! Should I take a gamble and go somewhere I like or be sensible?

    You are asking the question:-

    Do I do the course my future employer favours or do I go to another university which has many other courses which are considered more prestigious by lots of employers in completely different industries?

    The answer is up to you.

    Unfortunately not as I have already had a loan for a first degree - so i'm in a difficult position. I think I am gonna go with Cardiff anyway and keep my fingers crossed!
