    Hey people, nice to meet you. I've only read your threads until now, but I guess the time to ask some questions myself has come. I've recieved 4 offers. The problem is that I have no idea where to go. I like all four universities, they are unique and all offer remarkable student life. I would like to hear what you guys (and gals) think. I've been offered a place in The University of Leeds, Newcastle, Sheffield and Nottingham. I am an EU student so they are all really far away from home and location does not matter.

    Yes, I've seen statistics and rankings, but I don't think charts are enough for me to make that choice. I'd really be thankful if someone could share their experience, note some things that might not be in the statistics and help me out in any way with whatever information they have.

    If the above is TL;DR - Leeds vs Newcastle vs Sheffield vs Nottingham

    Thank you in advance,

    Todd

    EDIT: I'm going to study Computer Science (with year in industry)

    Have a look at the course structure for each university and see which one you prefer - does one have more exams or coursework? Do the modules look better at one over the others?

    Also think about the hobbies you might want to take up/continue when you get to university and have a look at their societies - some societies will be a lot more active than others.

    If you are an international student it is worth making sure that you can definitely stay in university accommodation after the first year (if you wish ) and check out the bursaries that you might be entitled to - as these things can sometimes be the deciding factor.
    Good luck.
