Please help a gal out. This is fairly straightforward. I'm just not sure what my priorities should be? I'm completely torn on this.

Leeds:
Pros - big city but not too big, stuff's not too expensive, good nightlife I hear
Cons - up north (far away)

Goldsmiths:
Pros - course is awesome, and MUCH closer to all my family and friends
Cons - crap reputation apparently (??)

Have offers from both. I know I've got lots of time until the firming deadline thing, but this is constantly on my mind and I'd love some outside input on this... thanks in advance

Leeds is more prestigious definitely, but if you like the course of Goldsmiths, go to Goldsmiths.

Is it worth it, though, to sacrifice uni reputation for a more "quirky" and enjoyable course?

I'm just terrified that I'll be killing all chances of a 25k+ job if I accept the Goldsmiths offer.

This is for Chinese and International Relations btw.

Weird coincidence that i got both of those offers aswell! Personally for me Goldsmiths was only put on my form for convenience of the distance, but I know people who studied Chinese at Leeds and are fluent now (some are Chinese teachers now). I'm not going to accept either because I got a better offer that I prefer, but in my opinion I would choose Leeds. Because you will be paying the same for each, but Leeds will offer more. I think you should research what you think constitues a quirky course and wait till the deadline before you whole heartedly confirm your choice. Goodluck and keep me posted

Ahh, that's so cool! Where else did you apply, what offers do you have? I'm still waiting on Exeter and SOAS

This will sound pretty lame, but seriously, the main reason I'm reluctant to move away from London is because my boyfriend is there. I know this shouldn't matter, but...
