    Hi,
    I 've received all of my offers and now I am thinking about which one to firm. I really like Bath and Leeds but really don't know which one to choose.
    I would really appreciate some help if you are familiar with any of these universities.

    I would like to study in a really nice environment where I can do sports and live a healthy lifestyle, which is really important to me. I am also vegan, so it would be great to enjoy great varieties of cafes, shops.

    As for the academics, I would choose Bath but I am really interested in Nutrition, Health, Eating behaviors, disorders but I can't see these among the optional modules..
    Also I think Bath's placement year looks great, however I applied for the 3 year course because I assumed that it's easier to be offered a place..but now that i got my offer i would like to do a placement, is there any possibility for that?

    I am going to list some of the ASSUMED pros and cons based on what matters to me, so if you have any insight whether they are correct assumptions pls tell me And based on this where should I go??

    Bath:
    pros:
    - better academics
    - more prestigious
    - beautiful environment, nice campus
    - beautiful rooms, srsly they are like hotels
    - better weather
    -very good sport facilities
    - peaceful

    cons:
    - too quiet, not so great nightlife, few cafes, shops
    - expensive
    - i am offered a place for a course without placement and i cant change that
    - i can't see great variety of optional modules but i might be wrong
    - more stressful i guess

    Leeds
    pros:
    - city life, lots of cafes, great nights, food options
    - modules for nutrition
    - seems to be more easy going, a lot more fun, bit friendlier
    - less stressful
    - cheaper
    - i can decide to go on a placement year

    cons:
    - rain rain and rain, **** cold weather, grey
    - thus i am going to be depressed
    - too much of a partyplace?? full of alcoholists who aren't there to study??
    - not very motivational place to do sports

    Thanks in advance

    I've firmed Bath for Sociology. When I went to the applicant day, I was told you can easily switch to doing a placement when you're in the first year. All you have to do is fill out a form and you're sorted. I'm sure the other departments would have the same system but still, I think it's worth emailing and asking. It's worth doing a placement to enhance your employability

    The Bath campus has tons of places to eat:
    http://www.bath.ac.uk/study/pg/stude...ies/index.html

    The Bath city centre isn't too far away from campus either and I've read that there are tons of shops there like an apple store, urban outfitters, designer shops, lots of cafes/bakeries etc etc. It doesn't really seem like its lacking any shops you might want to buy from.

    Have you visited either of the universities? I was unsure about where I'd firm but leaning more towards firming Bath and after my visit, I was 100% sure I wanted to firm.

    I think you should firm Bath but my opinion is unbalanced. I know nothing about Leeds, I never applied there and I don't live anywhere near there.

    Have you not seen the Edge at Leeds? http://sport.leeds.ac.uk/the-edge/

    I mean I study at Leeds now, and used to spend 4 weeks a year in Bath as a kid.

    Bath is by far the more beautiful city. It's stunning. BUT it is an extremely expensive city. In comparison with Leeds you will be spending a LOT more.

    The 'city centre' is tiny in comparison to Leeds. Bath is a historical city and as such small little shops, very pretty but nowhere near the choice in Leeds.

    If you're writing Leeds off on prestige I genuinely feel a little riled up. It's still a Russel Group university and still highly prestigious! Bath has a better reputation due to the city! It's South West and Leeds is North and the North is ' a baren wasteland' according to certain MPs.

    Bath is one of those places that is fantastic for holidays, but I could not live there, it's too small and far too expensive. I also feel that more 'happens' in Leeds.
