I'm currently at uni, but am not overly fussed on my course or the university itself, and so I've applied to study International Relations (starting 2016). I'm not 100% sure if I will swap, but I want to keep my options open. I've managed to narrow down my options to the University of Birmingham and the University of Exeter. I've visited both, and they both seem like great uni's with a great social side to them, but I'm a little stuck.
UOB is known for great graduate prospects, Birmingham is a big city so good on the social life side of things, and my boyfriend is actually studying IR there atm so I can nag him for help with the degree if I go ahead with it! The city is a little rough though, and the course is quite heavily seminar focused (which I don't love, although I realise all IR courses are probably like that).
Exeter is a lovely town, and is ranking highly in the league tables atm. I really liked the campus, and just had a really good feel for it when I visited. Accomodation seems super nice too. I'm not sure if its graduate prospects are as good as Birmingham's though, and I can't really pin point why I like it, I just do (which may be a bad thing).
So yeah, it would be awesome to hear some advice. My other options are Sheffield and Loughborough, which according to Which are actually better for future earnings(?), but I'm fairly sure I won't go for those. Thanks!
