    so my offers are for biology at warwick, southampton, oxford brooks and cardiff. i have decided oxford brooks to be my insurance but i cant decide my firm as they are all good.

    The topics i like is';
    immunology
    Heart
    Biological molecules
    nucleic acids
    Enzymes
    health and disease!
    respiration + photosynthesis
    photosynthesis

    I know the university i choice has a range of these in it but the thing i hate is ECOLOGY i hate it and environmental science and stuff like that all the university include them but i want to go to one with the least amount of it and the most amount of the stuff i like.
    I have done my research and i really dont know which is best cuz there are soo many pros and cons for each uni. so can you help me out and tell me which university would sound the best for me out the of ones i picked?

    Thanks you

    Firm Warwick and insure Southampton/Cardiff. Warwick is by far the strongest competing uni out of your list in all aspects. However, really do check in the course structure to see which one suits you the best and also visit each uni too, so you can see for yourself what feels right. Good luck!

    I looked at the biological sciences one

    I don't know a lot about southampton but I have applied to cardiff and warwick. Warwick have a lot of immunology, microbiology, virology, physiology and infection.

    whereas cardiff is more plant based, and do a lot of ecology.

    I would recommend looking at the research the professors and phd students do at your universities as that will give you an idea about which topics will be more common at each
