Quick introduction, my name is Hotse, I'm a 19-year-old young man from the Netherlands, and I am planning to study BA Archaeology and Anthropology in England. Please forgive me for any linguistic errors that I am going to make in the following phrases.
At the moment, I have received offers from four uni's - UCL, Uni of Southampton, Uni of Birmingham, and Uni of Bristol - but I'm having a hard time to decide which one to make my firm choice. There are various factors that I find meaningful to take into consideration, but course content, the university and its staff, the city, and finance are the most crucial ones.
To give you a better idea of what sort of University I am looking for, I shall combine my thoughts on the four factors mentioned above: the course has to cover all the subdisciplines of Anthropology (mostly that is Biological/Physical Anthropology and Social/Cultural Anthropology) and the Archaeology part has to include Prehistory or the Palaeolithic. At the moment, worth mentioning, I am enraptured by the topic of human origins/human evolution. Besides this, I find it extremely important that regional foci (and fieldwork projects) are not restricted merely to the Mediterranean area, North-West Europe or the Near East - but also cover other continents such as Africa, Asia or South America. When it comes to the city, I am searching for a cultural feeling, with enough museums (with archaeological collections), nightlife and historical architecture. The latter equally comprises the University's main building / Archaeology&Anthropology Department(s). Lastly, with regards to finance, I simply search for the University that offers me the best financial support package as a 19-year-old EU Student.
I am aware that it might be hard to give advice, but any thoughts are appreciated. Feel free to ask any questions to get some more clearance. Thank you.
