I'm hoping to study Neuroscience at University.
I've received offers from:
Leicester- Biological Sciences (Neuroscience)
Exeter- Medical Sciences (Neurosciences)
I'm still waiting on QMul to get back to me.
I'm having so much trouble deciding where to go. I am from Manchester and I understand that Edinburgh and Exeter are quite a distance away. I'll have to adapt to living far away from home and I'm okay with that. (Still trying to win my parents over, though lol) Are there any tips on living far away from home?
But can anyone reflect on their experiences at any of these universities, in terms of the students, the social atmosphere, and the best for prospects in the future? I'm city girl at heart but this does not really affect my choices. It helps if people are relatively down to earth and friendly, I can't put up with stuck up people.
I'm looking for a great academic environment that will push me but a balance in all aspects of life, really.
I may apply for graduate medicine after my degree but I'm still looking at other careers. Any advice and help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Edinburgh is definitely the most prestigious and the nicest place to live. But at Edinburgh you take up to three different subjects in years 1 and 2. If you only want to study neuroscience and nothing else then it might not be the best place for you.
