    Deciding on which uni to firm and it's difficult to say the least.

    Does York have a much better reputation for its history course or are they pretty much the same?

    And yes, that's not the most important thing but I'd like to know.

    If you look at the rankings they are much the same. I think it all comes down to whether you want to live in the big city down south or a large town up north. Both are equally attractive in their own ways. York is a lot cheaper though.

    And then according to the Guardian Queen Mary is 10th and York 17th.. it's hard to believe these rankings because they differ so much.

    Campus accommodation at York isn't actually cheaper than at Queen Mary, but this late I don't think I'd be able to get campus accommodation at Queen Mary, which is a big negative.

    I'd prefer to live in London, but I think there would be more of a 'university feel' at York, and York generally seems to be a more respected uni. It's hard to decide :/

    Is there much difference course content wise that would make you want to choose one over the other?

    As a whole, I think York is slightly more respected but they're both very good universities. Personally I'd go for York, but that's because I prefer the location

    Have you compared the modules? Visited the campuses?

    I'm sure you did! I'd apply there if they offered my course.
