    try and see bristol if you can as it will help and consider the course. and also look at things like accomodation and uni facilities. if you prefer uea choose it though, dont be put off by rankings because at the end of the day rankings dont make you happy for 3 years.

    Bristol if you want to study in an amazing, happening place, with something to do all the time. UEA if you want a quieter University experience. Not much between the Unis in terms of reputation, so if you like the area and prefer the course at UEA, go there?

    I have offers from both of these for Law.

    I would say to choose Bristol definitely. It is such a nice university, in a great area with fantastic facilities. Although UEA was great, I found Bristol in a different league to it. Bristol is also seen as more 'prestigious' without question, with a better reputation. Go to the post offer open days.. then choose Bristol

    I didn't say it was quiet at UEA, but it *is* quieter there than it is in Bristol.

    The University of Bristol is a fantastic university with a really good reputation. I personally would choose this one.
    However, UEA is a decent uni too and if you think this one appeals to you more then you might be unwise to not accept it, as it is really important that you are going to enjoy your course and university experience.
