Manchester - Politics & IR aab
Bristol - Politics & IR aaa
Sussex - IR aab/ a*bb
Kings - International Politics aaa

If you were to choose any of these which would you choose + place the 4 in order of preference.

I have offers from the first 3 and expect a Kings offer later. I've only been to Bristol s I'm planning on going to visit days + arranging visits. At the moment Manchester seems the most desirable, but I still need to check it out in real life (never been) and also it with Sussex is my lowest offer (AAB), so would be strange to make it my firm in a way.

my decision making for these choices were strength of department + how interesting the course was + largely from hearsay that Brighton, Manchester, London, Bristol are all attractive fun cities to be a student in.

But your opinions plz.

I have got offers from Manchester and Bristol waiting on KCL.

For me KCL > Bristol > Manchester

I prefer the feel and atmosphere of Manchester but Bristol is the superior University imo.

Its even easier than that ... You've got 2 potential Firms, two potential Insurance. One choice from each pair.

I'd pick Bristol and Sussex - but you need to read this and make your own decision - http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...urance_choices

Btw. you have MONTHS to make this decision.

It does sound good when u put it like tht but If my first choice is Manchester or Sussex then I can't put them as insurance because then id have to deliberately try and get AAB which is not what I'm going todo

Yeah but nt good to leave to last minute, need to visit these places

Some confusion here... Say you pick either Manchester or Sussex as your firm (with AAB offers) and any other uni as your insurance (AAA or AAB). Whether you get AAA or AAB in your results is immaterial. You will have met the conditions of your firm and your insurance disappears.

I'm a current (about to graduate :cry2:) Manchester politics student, and I'd definitely recommend Manchester. I honest can't imagine being happier anywhere else - it's a great place to live, lots to do, and as the department is quite large there's a vast variety of modules on offer too http://courses.humanities.manchester...?department=13

Not sure that I'd choose to live in London for uni - it's incredibly expensive, and after first year you tend to find that people disperse over London because no one can afford to live in central London, near the university. So, you tend to find that you lose the 'student village' effect that you'd get around Fallowfield (Manchester) or Clifton / Redland / Cotham in Bristol, or the equivalent in Brighton. Bristol is a great place to live though, and from what I've heard Brighton is too, as well as Manchester.
