    in terms of experience, quality of teaching and graduate employment.

    Course is History & Theology and Religious Studies.

    Offers:

    Leeds: ABB [A in History]
    Lancaster: AAB
    Glasgow: ABB
    Cardiff: ABB
    Newman University College: 280 points


    Trying to decide what to firm and what to insure. Thanks for any help.
    ETA: since I'm a EU passport holder from Northern Ireland I'll most likely get full tuition fees paid for me at Glasgow by SAAS.

    So basically the order of the offers from high to low. And since you only get two choices, it's pretty clear you should firm Lancaster and backup one of the others (maybe not Newman unless you're convinced you're likely to mess up more than one subject)

    I love how everyone uses the Guardian tables since the Times got put behind a paywall.

    The first 4 are all pretty equal I would say? Just firm the one you like the most, where you'd feel the most comfortable. Leeds is a big city, with lots do to and it'll be completely different to Lancaster which is by the sea and is much smaller. Also it depends what modules you do in each course and whether they interest you - I would have applied to Leeds if I had the grades for the course, and I know they had modules that I'd love to do.. it's ashame they changed their entry requirements

    I'd go:

    Leeds > Cardiff > Lancaster > Glasgow > Newman

    But I know a lot about Leeds and Cardiff, and nothing about Lancaster, so I'm almost certainly wrong :P

    Yup, that's my reason. Dam you Times!
