Hi, I am from India and I am Planning to study law in UK.
I have received unconditional Offers from Newcastle University, University Of Southampton,University of Leicester and Bangor University.
I am really confused which university to short list and therefore seek help to finalize the University.
Thanks.

Based on university reputation alone I would recommend Leicester and Southampton (I went there myself, but studied something else).

Although to be fair I'm not sure what the Law departments themselves are like at those unis.

Have you compared these courses on WhatUni and Unistats websites?

I am a teacher in a UK school with a lot of Internatiional students, the advice I give is to consider how easy it will be to get there as well as reputation. Sothamton will be fairly easy to get to if you fly into London but the living costs for uni accommodation are quite high. Can you fly into Birmingham direct and then travel across to Leicester? Bangor is miles away from where you would want to be. Then I would look at the rankings for the uni and your subject.

Hi! I've been looking at Bangor and Leicester too! I've done the compare in Unistats for you:

Overall satisfaction: Bangor 94%; Leicester and Southampton = 83%; Newcastle = 91%. Bangor is also higher than the other three for all of the other questions on student support, feedback, teaching and stuff like that, but Newcastle has the highest score for the Students Union. Leicester has the highest score for employment/working (91%, where the other three are 90%), but also the highest % unemployed (6%) - go figure! Bangor has more coursework (44%, the other three are around 20%), so if you prefer exams to essays, you might prefer Leicester where it's only 19% coursework.

Hope that helps!! As someone said, distance from London might be a factor for you, Leicester's like an hour to London on the train whereas Bangor is three hours on the train. Good luck with making your choice!!
