    I'm really stuck! Should I go to a uni that I love, it's got a brilliant student union, inspiring city, nice campus but the course is brand new, not as many oppertunites on the course (but far more in other areas of uni life) and the lecturers aren't as experienced so it's a bit of a gamble or do I choose a uni that I don't really like, it's in a rubbish town, nothing of interest in the students union and the campus and accommodation looks awful but the course is CreativeSkillset accredited, has fantastic industry links and employment afterwards?

    If answering just the title I would 100% say chose the better uni with the worse course - this is because it might be better for job prospects.

    However in your situation, you've got to go with the uni you love overall: weigh up the pros and cons of each (is the uni good enough even if the course isn't or vice versa?), and then decide where you wanna be!

    If it was me .. good uni
    U won't stick the bad uni with a good course so the fact that the course is better doesn't matter
    But that's just me
    Good luck
