    Aberystwyth or Dundee.

    Aber has a 3yr course vs Dundee's 4yr.

    But Dundee has x10 times better study abroad options compared to Aber.

    Aber is a little further out of the way so would cost more to get home.

    Whats your thoughts?

    If the only thing Aber's favour is having one less year then go with Dundee, years abroad can be great fun

    Look into the actual course content and see which interests you more. If studying abroad for a year or so is something that you know you WILL do, then that's a big plus for Dundee. Have a look around both of the universities boards on here and try and get a feel of what both of the universities are like. Also, have you went to the visiting days? People usually come away from visiting days knowing which university they want to attend.
