Just about decided on Sheffield, and then Bristol gave me a really good offer. Anyone got any insight as to which is better? course wise and student life? x X x

If you know what you want to do afterwards, check out which modules they currently offer to their final year students, as this will give you an insight into which area os psychology they specialise in... If not, check out which one offers the broadest range, as you can then tailor the course to suit yourself.

Depends what you mean by 'really good offer', if it means low grades, then ask yourself why...

Good luck!

academic rep i'd go for Bristol (even tho I'm at shef). Life it depends what you want. I know people who havent liked Bristol have found it too snobby. Both are good academically so think of what you want out of your uni experience.

thats very true some halls at Bristoll are quite snobby and at first i was quite iffy about it but once you settle in its very easy to avoid the snobby people

Thanks for all the advice guys, my academic mind is telling me Bristol as i know its a great uni in the big wide world, but Sheffield looks like so much fun! I've heard that at Bristol its very much like "which college did you get rejected from?" i.e. full of oxbridge rejections and the halls are really far away from citylife. But then its Bristol! decisions decisions...anyone else got a tough decision to make?
