    I have recieved offers from Teesside and Manchester MET for Computer Games Design courses, I'm currently waiting for a reply from Staffordshire Uni (Stafford campus) for the same course.

    I have picked my insurance as Wolverhampton for Games Design since they are offering me less UCAS points but I can't decide on Teesside or Staffs for my first choice.

    Can anyone offer any insite on what the Uni's are like to live at? How easy is it to live there? (e.g. ease of grocery shopping etc) What is there to do?

    I have been to both Uni's (although Teesside don't offer housing tours) so I know what to expect, but I'd like to know if anyone going to either knows what I could expect if it would effect my decision.

    Try posting in each unis individual forum for advice on the specific unis/courses.

    Where would you rather live? Which has nicer accomodation? Do either offer more interesting modules? etc etc etc....

    Yeah, but the course and facilities at Staffs and Tees seem better to me, hence why I said in the Original Post that I'm trying to pick between these two. Thanks for the input though
