I got into Exeter and Surrey university. Durham has only today accepted me. I do not know which university to pick. Durham is higher up the rank for Law.

Any advice? Much appreciated .

I would definitely go for Durham. It is the most reputable one in your list. I would list Exeter as your insurance.

Go for the one YOU want. Which one seems best for you...

Durham may be higher up for law... So what? When you graduate it may not be... Is the employer going to look up your university on the league table for 3 years ago?

League tables aren't everything.

Go for where you want to go.

Durham and Exeter as insurance. Employers will definitely look at the overall performance of the university you went to in the subject you did.

Well, Surrey is near to me. Exeter and Durham are far away. I mean Surrey does have that year abroad. I'm wondering why the others don't have this?

It will matter employability wise. Of course what result I get will determine that too. It's a tricky one. Thank you though .

You're right. They will look for what result I get. I'm just wondering if they will also look for the top universities? Of course Oxford and Cambridge are the top ones. Durham comes in fourth. The others are below in the tables. Although the tables aren't everything, it's something to consider right? Thank you though .

Yes It is. Durham's law course is amongst the best and the campus is very nice to. But good luck with whichever one you choose!

Of course they will be mainly looking for the top universities, but that is not always the case. If you do exceptionally well and you are an all-rounded student, it doesn't matter if you went to Surrey or Durham; they would choose you over an Oxbridge student that only had mediocre marks and has little to offer.
