    I'm applying for IR, which one would be the better option Sheffield or Exeter?
    My other choices are KCL, Warwick, St Andrews and Bath.

    I could really use some help! Thanks

    I've got two offers from Sheffield for law and law with criminology, so I'm a bit biased but: fantastic reputation as a uni, Russell Group, beautiful city and surroundings, the campus is lovely and my open day was absolutely brilliant, it's always rated highly in student satisfaction, they have one of the best SUs and, for my course, they are very good.

    I don't know how many of those things apply to Exeter as I've never been. These websites helped me when I was choosing my unis, if you haven't already seen them.

    Unistats is a really useful website to use, but remember that statistics can be manipulated to support just about anything.
    My advice would be to visit both universities and have a good look at the modules. There's probably not much difference in terms of prestige, so it'll be down to personal preference .
