    I have the same grade offer for both universities, but I'm undecided as to which I want to place as my firm choice.

    I've gone through statistics galore and so I'm not really looking for anything like that. I'd just like to know your opinions about the universities in general; the kind of lecturers and students there; how nice the campus is (I've only been to Warwick so far), etc. Anything like that would be helpful.

    Thank you!

    Exeter has a stunning campus and is a really nice city. I think you should visit and make your own decision if possible.

    I'm planning on it, for a long time I wasn't really considering Exeter because I only got my offer recently and it's much further away.

    As far as I know they're both great unis which makes it really hard to choose

    Distance is another issue you need to consider. How far close do you want to be to home. Exeter is a base for Flybe and you can fly from places like Manchester and Newcastle to save time and sometimes money. Check this out but probably you would need to stay overnight. I have never been to Warwick but understand the uni is some distance outside the city whereas Exeter is a 15 minute walk. One of the drawbacks of Exeter is it is extremely hilly so you might like to consider that as well,
