    Hi!
    I've received all of my offers (archaeology) and I have to choose between Southampton or Cardiff as firm choice and Bangor or Aberdeen as insurance.
    Could you please tell me something more about those universities? Which ones would you choose and why?
    I will appreciate any advice!

    Look at the course content for each Uni (it won't be the same) - and think about grade requirements. And look at their Open Day films on You Tube.

    Lots of TSR advice on making F&I choices here : http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/cont...urance-choices

    Cardiff is the biggest city and is a regional centre. It has a very modern shopping centre including major stores like John Lewis. It has an international arena and top concert hall and has major sporting events held there. The university itself is a city university and is on the edge of town not far from the castle law courts and museum. The one drawback I can see is that some of the halls are some distance from the campus. It isn't like a normal campus university in that respect.
    Bangor on the other hand is a very small place in a nice area of North Wales. As far as Southampton and Aberdeen are concerned I know nothing about them other than things I have learned from here. I gather Southampton is a fairly new campus on the outskirts of town. It seems to range from people who really like it to those who don't. As far as reputation and league tables I wouldn't worry about them. Southampton and Cardiff are of broadly similar standard.
