    Bangor is rated top 10 (7th I think...) for research quality.... it may not have that high entrance requirements but i'm pretty sure it will be a high quality course with lecturers who know they're stuff.

    also, it's by the beach.

    I live in oxford and my mum went to oxford brooks... they have so many campuses, none of them in central oxford and one in a tiny town miles from oxford.

    Personally, I wouldn't go to oxford brookes.... but I guess you've been to the open days the stuff and would know if the awkward campus arrangement would work for you... CHECK WHICH CAMPUS PSYCHOLOGY IS ON.... if it is on the wheatly campus... no... its a tiny town miles from oxford, if it is on the main campus then that would probably work, It;s a bus ride into the city but I always see 'brookes' buses around and take it its pretty regular and they go between the city centre and all the campuses..... just don't go to the wheatly campus.... Oxford is lovely city though, which for its size has all the things a good city should have and the Oxford University Parks are lovely in the summer....
    But the person above raised a good point about bangor, there are about 260 in a year, just depends how you feel about large year groups I guess. I've never been to bangor, but I've heard their course is good..... and it is by the beach.......

    but you have pretty awesome predicted grades.... what are your other offers?

    I go to Oxford Brookes and I personally love it. Psychology is on main Gipsy Lane Campus, so you won't be out at Wheatley. Main campus is 20 minutes walk from the city centre so there's no worry about being out in the sticks.
