just going by instinct, which are you most attracted to? surely lookin at all of them there must have been one which appealed to you more than the others. and what matters to you more: having a great time there, where you'd feel most comfortable, uni rep, how good the course is?

well, i think Birmingham may have the best English course, because they ask for AAB in single honours, but in joint it's ABB - but i dont know i cant go to sheffield or b'ham open days in 2 weeks due to a stupid controlled art exam

Can't you go and look around them both on another day?

I suggest you visit them - that usually helps. Also have a look at their course structure and see which one you like best. I would go for Leeds personally (even though i didn't apply there) because it's lovely.

yeah e-mail, explain that it's difficult for you to attend the open days and they'll probably be fine with it. even if you don't get some kind of a tour you can still just look around, get the feel of it. good luck.

hehehehe yeh thanks for the help guys - i've just emailed them both to tell about open days - but also asked b'ham about more details concerning an option for a year of study abroad + whether that applies to joint honour students as well as single,

lol - i'm still not sure which i want to go to ,

but i like Sheffield so far because of their study a year abroad - it's well descripted in the prospectus - but maybe b'ham has the same option

I looked at Brums English course years ago but didnt like it. I dont know whether it is different now but when I looked it was too traditional for me.

The type of course too much Shakespeare and Chaucer in the first year for my liking compared to other unis. However the syllabus could be completely different now.

some unis are really crap and can take days and days. If you contacted Sheffield then its the department that are slow because everytime that I contacted my lovely department if I emailed them at night i had a reply at 8.30 the next morning hows that for efficiency
