Have you had a look at how rigid the course is at Sheffield? i.e. if you have 20 credits/year flexible that you'd be allowed to use in the politics department that might help bridge that gap.

I get how you feel about the politics dilemma, doing psychology meant there was no way I could do politics as well but I miss it so much! It seems like you would enjoy studying at Sheffield a lot more however, and as you mentioned if you did choose to focus on politics for your culture courses then you could study politics at a higher level afterwards. How you feel about the university and the city itself is very important and often not considered enough by people when making a decision. Interestingly, I'm from Leeds and moved to Sheffield for university (Hallam, so can't comment on Sheffield Uni itself) and personally find that Sheffield is lackluster in comparison. I also find my university department is pretty average and some of the staff actually make me dislike modules that I would have loved otherwise! I'm kind of stuck here now but I definitely wish I had considered how I feel about the uni and location more, because I definitely would have preferred somewhere with a lot more going on (Sheffield feels so small and quiet to me!).

Well for Sheffield you have to do a year abroad for language courses. Also from what I remember a lot of the modules are about the culture rather than the language so I'd think you could do something like the politics of China/Japan.

Also regarding what laurenfae95 said about the city, there's a lot more going on at Uni of compared to Hallam in terms of events and societies, to the point where a few Hallamers end up joining Uni of societies, and if you trek out about 20-30 minutes you can find a lot of stuff usually for locals too.

Choose the University of Leeds. The degree looks better (politics and a language) while the University of Sheffield one is just a language based degree.
