1. how good the uni is.
2. the environment, greenery, cleanliness of the uni (as stupid as that sounds)
3. the course looked good compared to others i had seen.
4. the student union also looks pretty cool.

i;m sure there were other factors, just cant think of them right now..

How pretty it was. I kid you not. I decided which university I wanted to go to 3 years ago and then decided afterwards what course I wanted to do! I like my first choice because it is a great city but also has beautiful buildings, surroundings, and student facilities. So please God if I don't f*** up on Thursday I will be there!

Firm: how good the teaching is, how flexible the course is, the accommodation, the location, the distance from home and how good the uni is.

Insurance: how flexible the course is, the campus and the location.

For the unversities I applied to I looked at the cost, distance from home (it had to be far) the course and how good the university was. However, with my decisions I based it on how much I liked the area and the course and couldn't be bothered with a few hundred pounds difference in cost or things like that.

I just liked it when I visited. I felt as though I could actually be happy living and studying there.

The course is good too, obviously.. lol

Oh, and it's also a LONG way from home. Which is a plus. ;]

Most importantly the course and uni's reputation for it.

Also the environment and what it seemed like on open day.
