    I have to decide between Exeter and Surrey for my insurance choice. Their rankings are quite similar. Any arguments on how to decide?

    Look carefully at the course structure/modules - they will be different. Pick whichever university that has the most interesting course. Maybe also consider things like campus jobs, study abroad opportunities, accommodation availability and price etc. Unistats is a good way to compare courses too: https://unistats.direct.gov.uk

    Thank you! Still, Surrey is close to London and has the better student satisfaction scores ....

    I don't know much about the Economics course, but in terms of overall experience Exeter appears to have a better experience.

    I believe Exeter is a russell group and Surrey isn't.. therefore if it were me, I'd be firming Exeter.

    Edited, sorry by firming I mean firming as your insurance.
