    Hi,
    I have two different offers from the Universities of Leeds and Sheffield. In Leeds I have an offer for Broadcast Journalism whilst Sheffield have offered me a place in the BA Journalism studies course. The Leeds offer's requirements are higher, does that mean that the course is better?
    Do you have any idea which course is better and where I should go? xx

    No it doesn't mean the course is better.

    No, it has no relevance at all on the 'quality' of the course - or the Uni.

    Compare the two courses against each other in detail. Any differences?

    Look at the facilities they both have. Is one better than the other?

    Does one have better placements and links with employers?

    Don't know much about the differences but i'll tell you my general opinion on Leeds. I've been there for the applicant day and loved it, the course seemed just right for me (which is visual games and effects) and the campus looks amazing, I haven't been to Shefield, but you should definatly give Leeds a try, especially if you're in the Headingly campus. Accommodation also seems great.

    Hi Hannah

    I'd definitely recommend visiting - we've got our Accommodation Viewing Day on Saturday 27th April, although academic departments won't be open, you can see all of our Halls and also take tours of the Student's Union and sports centre, The Edge.

    If you can't make that date, we do run campus tours every week, you can find more information and book online at www.leeds.ac.uk/visitus
